Ashish For Topshop

Prepare yourselves: this spring, tracksuits and sweatshirts are permitted. Apparently Alexander Wang’s influence has stretched as far as the new Ashish for Topshop collection, which launches on Wednesday.


Prepare yourselves: this spring, tracksuits and sweatshirts are permitted. Apparently Alexander Wang’s influence has stretched as far as the new Ashish for Topshop collection, which launches on Wednesday.

The new seven-piece collection features not-one-but-five pieces in jersey fabric. The four pieces – a rolled-up grey marl tracksuit trouser, a pair of matching cuffed shorts, a cropped grey sweatshirt (tied at the waist), a pair of studded tracksuit bottoms and a studded black sweatshirt – all lend themselves to the sporty-chic aesthetic that we saw on the spring runways.

The other two pieces? A biker jacket featuring Ashish Gupta’s trademark 3-centimetre studs and a pair of 1970s-inspired gold platform wedges.

Of the collection, Ashish says: “I love the contrast between soft sweatshirt fabric and metal spikes – it’s classic sportswear meets punk.”  Do you agree? I’m not sure that I could ever pull off the sweatshirt/tracksuit look, even if it is the trend du jour this season.

    I love Katie Grands vision, an unexpected smile has spread my face, now I must exit out of this page before my family discovers I’m excited women are naked to show diversity …they don’t understand fashion like we do.
    XOXOX

    I’ve always wanted to be able to pull off sweats IRL. Now may be my chance.

    Love Grace.
