Well it’s technically Topshop I suppose, and it’s not clothes either so this post is kinda losing its relevance however I shall persevere. For Topshop this (festive) season Gareth Pugh has created a Christmas tree out of those most nontraditional of materials: neon light bulbs. Gareth has used 60 neon bulbs to create this rather lack luster tree that has no tinsel, shiny glass ornaments or even a fairy straddling the peak, minimal just isn’t Christmas. But check it out for yourself, the tree will be available to view at Topshop/Topman’s flag ship store at Oxford Circus.

Love it or hate it, the opening of another Topman in the UK would be met with nothing more than a shrug. In fact, given their ubiquity, it would be met with a half shrug at best. However news that a Topman would open in New York has created so much attention that Topman started the black trouser project to showcase some up and coming designers.
