London - British high street staple, Topshop, has unveiled its first 'High Summer' capsule collection developed in collaboration with Net-a-Porter.com. The 20-piece assortment, which officially launches today, is said to have been inspired by the Henley Royal Regatta, a rowing event held annually on the River Thames.
The resulting collection consists of mannish suiting in monochrome stripes and florals, taken from the garlands used to decorate the boats, white and blue lace designs as well as primly pleated collars and cuffs. The collection also features classic khaki denims, cable knit sweaters and boat shoes in leopard ponyskin.
"We continue to use our heritage of British Style and culture to bring to life new season shapes for the 'High Summer' collection, yet focus on what is familiar and signature to the Unique handwriting," said Kate Phelan, Creative Director at Topshop. "Each design brings an element of fun, celebrates the great British summer and captures the spirit of all the wonderful annual social events."
Prices for the collection range from 55 pounds to 275 pounds (105 US dollars to 500 US dollars) with the collection available for sale exclusively at Topshop.com and Net-a-Porter.com.
