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.

Topman’s Black Trouser Project

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 will open in New York has created so much attention that Topman started the black trouser project to showcase some up and coming designers.

Featuring designers Patrick Ervell, Tim Hamilton, Aitor Throup, Ann-Sofie Back and Todd Lynn, this is the next logical step from their white shirt project. If you had to compare the two projects, I’d say that this is slightly more daring as there’s less you can do with trousers without making them totally unwearable. They’ll be available from October from $120 in the NY flagship store. I assume they’ll be available from the Oxford Circus branch and online as well from around the same time.
