Topshop Unique is one of the only high street brands to show at London Fashion Week, attracting a crowd of the most style savvy celebs and top industry specialists such as Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Daisy Lowe and Poppy Delevinge who went to see the showing of the label’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. Eager to see what styles and trends lay ahead, this unveiling of the latest range promises an abundance of texture, print and layering.
The mixture of top notch designs and impeccable styling makes Topshop Unique a fashion force to be reckoned with. Injected with an almost tomboy theme the models, including British beauty Jourdan Dunn, rocked numerous high-end looks to rival big named designers.

It seems like the 90s still has an influence over current fashion trends as one of spring’s must-have bag styles is the trusty backpack. They have been around for a few seasons now but these practical accessories still have plenty to offer keen fashion enthusiasts thanks to the plethora of new luxe designs for chic minimalism.
You may get flashbacks of your school days, but this new generation of rucksack beauties will be enough to banish those ghastly fashion memories! Contemporary styles feature clean, refined lines and silhouettes as well as functional detailing for women on the go. Subtle colours such as green or coral along with neutral shades add appeal to the backpacks but if you want more of a statement then don’t say no to neon bright.
This minimalistic approach allows the bags to not only be suitable for day trips but makes them work friendly as they’ll look equally lovely worn with a cute summer dress or tailored suit. This whole sportswear theme is still getting the fashion world hyped up too so what better accessory to flaunt this spring/summer! Their modern functionality will keep you organised and style ready for the epitome of opulent dressing plus there is an option whatever your budget.
It’s time to take a step back from heavily embellished bags and welcome in the new era of the luxe backpack!
