Picture-perfect flowerbeds on both sides of the catwalk. The wooden floor that doubles as decking is none the less perfect. At the end, models emerge from a magical, overgrown secret garden in full bloom.
Topshop Unique caused a bit of a shock when, instead of serving up a year's worth scoop of chic minimalism, it sent the craziest, loudest hippy outfits down the catwalk, that is, the disused old Eurostar terminal at Waterloo station. Even though the more subtle 1970s pieces have made yet another comeback this autumn (just think of the palazzo trousers, pussy-bow blouses and flowy printed tops), this in-your-face, exuberant version of party outfits and loungewear left many quite speechless.
