This year Topshop are all about the new and the next, which is very similar to our ethos here at PlusMinus.
Every campaign has its model protagonist and part of Topshops’s fresh approach to SS17 is their newest face: Lily Jean, a 17 year old fresh faced student who is set to take the modelling world by storm. But here’s the catch: the poetry lover and keen Snapchatter who’s destined to be your new #girlcrush was an unknown model until she was discovered by Topshop.
After walking her first Topshop Unique show last September, she is now the face of SS17. With Gigi, Karlie and Cara former faces of Topshop, it is clear that Lily is destined to be the next big thing.
So who exactly is Lily Jean Harvey? Well, we know she’s a self-professed lover of the ease and chilled vibes of summer. And after getting the call while still in school, Lily has certainly got her priorities right, and the collection references this. We think it feels like the 90’s re-imagined in a world of Instagram and Snapchat.
The new collection has some seriously strong pieces that are perfect to buy now and wear for the coming seasons, with trends such as statement sleeves and pink seen throughout. It also has a youthful, fun and fresh feel to it. Jump in head first or just shop a few pieces – it will still add a relaxed summer vibe to your outfit.
We think that Lily looks incredible in the silver vinyl Jamie jeans that will go with SO many things in our wardrobes. The intricate embroidery on denim pieces – such as jackets and flirty mini skirts – is another winner. We also love the return of gingham, and Topshop doesn’t disappoint this season; from ankle boots to flowy midi skirts, it’s time to get into this micro trend.
Add to the mix fun flats that remind us of the Miu Miu flats we fell in love with and the whole collection has a very relaxed comfortable feel to it – vibrant and youthful just like Lily herself.
So it looks like we know what we’re going to wear this spring and summer… We’ll see you at the checkout.
