Topshop NewGen T-shirts

After the calmed craze of Marni at H&M I headed to Topshop in Suria KLCC to have a look at Topshops' NEWGEN  t-shirts. As we know Topshop has been sponsoring British Fashion Council's NEWGEN scheme for already ten years. It seems that a celebration of a decade of sponsorship is due, hence the collection, which is designed by its most celebrated alumni.

Christopher Kane, Richard Nicoll, Erdem, Peter Pilotto, Ashish, Meadham Kirchoff, Jonathan Saunders, Gareth Pugh, Mary Katrantzou, House of Jazz, Roksanda Ilincic, Marios Shwab, Louise Gray, Nasir Mazhar, JW Anderson, Emma Cook, Peter Jensen, Holly Fulton, Craig Lawrence and Michael van der Ham have all created T-shirts for the initiative...

I tried a few t-shirts on but could not justify the price (about RM160 per piece), considering the fact that I have splurged during the riotous rampage at Marni at H&M.

At the same time Mary Katrantzou's collaboration with Topshop also was in-store when I was casually browsing. Surprisingly the silk lamp shade-shaped dress was almost sold out, and there were only a few pieces left including this cropped t-shirt. Who would have known that KL-ites have the guts (and the height, hopefully) to possibly pull off Katrantzou pieces...
