Dot to Dot

Monochrome spotted faux fur and models sporting cute painted black noses and puppy ear hair; on first take, TopShop Unique’s Autumn/Winter 2011 show was as dotty and adorable as a room full of dalmatians. But TopShop’s in-house design team delivered more than just cartoon clothes.

Taking the American Jazz Age as it’s inspiration, Unique showed a collection of modern tailoring that evoked the glamour of Thirties Speakeasies and Industrial age New York. Knee high socks, tea-dresses and Mary-Jane shoes were fit for giddy chorus girls letting loose on table tops. While the sleek luxury of down-sized luggage bags and wide-legged suits paid homage to the Goldge Age of the motor car. Decadent and chic, clothes Cruella Deville would have killed for.
