The new Kendall and Kylie collection for Topshop dropped this week after weeks of teasing fans with sneak peaks on social media. Topshop released a preview videos the week before which left fashion lovers even more eager to see what was to come.
We headed down to the Cape Town launch event at the V&A Waterfront to indulge in some candy, get manicures by the fabulous Chi Chi from Nails by Chi Chi and, most importantly, check out the beautiful clothing pieces.
It was quite surprising that the collection was small with a total of 15 items which aptly captures both Kylie and Kendall’s unique styles. Kylie’s style was evident in pieces with an edgier look with like sweatshirts and slogan t-shirts. For Kendall, her an LA-inspired beach look came through in certian pieces, like floral print playsuits and peasant tops.
According to a post on their blog, the collection pays homage to L.A. lifestyle and contemporary, eclectic design aesthetic:
“We are so excited to see our collection in Topshop – it is the perfect place to capture the energy and aesthetic of our designs. When working on the inspiration, we very much wanted to capture the essence of our own lifestyles and create pieces that would fit perfectly into our wardrobes,”
We love the collection, and can see how it would appeal to the South African market, it’s definitely worth it to pay a visit to the V&A Topshop store and or hop online (here) and have a peep at what’s available!
