TOPSHOP X Design Duo @ Edward Meadham & Benjamin

TOPSHOP announced its working with design duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff for the 4th time this winter. The collection will be TOPSHOP'S largest designer collaboration to date, with 80 pieces and will showcase Meadham Kirchhoff's skill of story telling and design flare. The story for this collection is that of a girl band, The Cherrys - Cherry Cherie, Cherry Satanika, Cherry Pikka and Cherry Blossom. A collective of rebels, each Cherry embodies their own signature style.
Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff, Meadham Kirchhoff comments: ‘This collection for TOPSHOP was inspired by the idea of a band or a gang which we named "The Cherrys". The overall aesthetic was influenced by Marylin Manson and the Spooky Kids, Kembra Pfahler and glam rock. It is an enormous and all encompassing collection which will offer a myriad of choice for any customer to adapt or reject as they see fit. Contrasting textures; leather, lace, suede, chiffon, crochet, glitter, Mongolian shearling, pvc and angora wool are worked in a palette of eye popping brights and clashing baby doll pastel pinks, yellows and blues. Every piece in this collection of separates, dresses and jackets tells an individual story, which can be brought together in an image of your favourite Cherry. Cherry Blossom and Cherry Cherrie are sweet and innocent girls whereas Cherry Satanika and Cherry Pikka take their wicked streak from the styling of their glam rock heroes. Emblems such as eyes, cherries, animal prints, pentangle stars and rainbows feature heavily across the collection.
Kate Phelan, TOPSHOP Creative Director comments: “Ben and Ed have been captivating a global fashion audience at LFW  for over 10 years. This collection of Cherries will inspire and delight. The pieces are special and exciting they capture their bitter-sweet world of fashion”.
A large selection of accessories, footwear and jewellery provide standout pieces in the collection and embody Meadham Kirchoff’s aesthetic to complete the look.  Platforms are fur-trimmed and mary-janes are pointed with marshmallow heels. 70’s style platform boots feature cartoon faces and come fully covered in fun fur to be worn with stripe ankle warmers. Handbags are fun and playful, such as a heart shaped lace detail clutch and rainbow fur bucket bag. Scarves are oversized and stripy while hair bows, star pendent necklaces and pink studded chokers can finish the cherry look.
