Topman LTD has launched a range of summer clothing inspired by fifties nostalgia – yet enhancing the style with a modern edge. Taking its name and inspiration from The Talented Mr Ripley, the range presents a bold take on summery fifties styling.
The centrepiece of the collection is the selection of printed tops. A wide variety of shirts, polos and vests in nostalgic prints give the collection a bold sense of character. Knitted polos adhere to the fifties sensibilities of the range whilst mesh detailed shirts provide an up to date contrast.
The trousers of the collection are in a classic cut with pleats yet are available in a bold contemporary colour palette. Shorts are available in a similar pleated style or in a more contemporary cut adorned with the bold prints that define the collection, making a bold alternative statement piece.
The bright prints are tempered by neutral layering pieces; jumpers, t-shirts and jackets in more subdued tones moderate the bold prints and ground the looks, providing a solid base of classic styling for the over-the-top retro pieces.
Suiting is also available in the form of a short suit in a navy check as well as a light grey textured blazer. The style contrasts with the classic boxy cut and colour. These pieces provide a bold way to spruce up the key items worn as a whole or as separates.
Overall, Topman LTD’s new collection captures a retro vibe whilst staying on trend for this summer. Mixing classic casualwear with fifties inspired prints, it channels just the right amount of nostalgia to add an interesting touch to an outfit without giving off an air of trying too hard.
