Exclusive to Topshop, key pieces from the collections of three of this year’s most talented Central St Martins graduates will be featured in Oxford Circus from Oct 14th. Pieces will not be available anywhere else and with a limited run of no more than 50 of each item made, your garment will be a piece of 2010 history. Get your hands on these one-off pieces from Lilly Heine, Matthew Harding and Simone Rocha.
Drawing inspiration from Picasso‘s sketches of women, Lilly Heine interpreted her exploration of the body through strong silhouettes in her design. She studied for her MA in Textile design, where she received international acclaim for her unusual aesthetics in shape and surface design.
Three of the designs featured in her collection will be available to purchase at Topshop, including two dove grey shift dresses in wool crepe with laser cut leaves in yellow or lilac which move when in motion.
Matthew Harding focused on the strength of women, comparing feminine characters against strong and confident attitude. He designed key pieces that extenuate the female form, exploring the structure and dimensions of sheer jersey fabrics and sheep wool.
Three pieces will be featured at Topshop; a black crepe mid-calf length dress and a white crepe long sleeved top are featured with copper frames whilst a black wool jacket features shaggy sheep wool.
With similar associations with her father John, Simone Rocha has been said to feature and new, sharper style of her own. Her SS11 Graduate
collection featured pieces of slick, neutral tailoring that was alleviated by sheer geometric panels. Taking this further, she designed headwear that she claims brings romanticism and softness to her overall look.
A selection of her headwear will be available to purchase at Topshop.
