Following on from the success of their previous project, which involved numerous designers revamping the timeless Pea Coat, it seems as though Topman are at it again – this time enlisting the talents of 6 designers to rework another classic; The Denim Jacket.
Topman Design has produced a polka dot number in a classic cut that fits in with THE major trend for this season: patterns and prints. The bold design demands attention, making this jacket a great statement piece that would be complemented by a neutral outfit – allowing it to take its rightful place centre stage.
Lou Dalton’s jacket is a more subdued, versatile piece that could be used in a wide range of outfits. The light wash is ideal for summer, allowing you to brighten up an outfit without dominating it.
Katie Eary’s take features a light shearling collar and utilises badges for detailing. Bringing shearling into summer is a bold move and gives the piece an outdoors sensibility – something that would work well in a town and country inspired outfit. Wear with knits and chunky boots to embrace the aesthetic and take a rugged approach to the summer.
Shaun Samson takes a very different approach; adorning his jacket with mesh panel detailing that gives it a futuristic, punky vibe. Take inspiration from the photo shoot and pair with your skinniest jeans/trousers and the graphic tee of your choice, for an edgy casual look.
Oliver Spencer mixes up the denim jacket with a biker cut usually reserved for leathers. The clean, deep blue wash is a striking choice and works well with the white trousers, creating an interesting spin on the Riviera trend.
Retailing at £70, they are available from April 5th 2012 on the Topman website (as well as in select stores).
