TOPSHOP Goes Sporty:
Never thought sport inspired brands would be fashion’s latest trend? Well looks like Topshop will make you think again. The High end store recently came together with Sports Giant, Adidas to bring a collection that will delight all athletic fashionista’s. The 20-piece collection – inspired by Adidas Originals’s heritage icons – features this season’s popular sporty trend. Classics are re-invented with silhouettes like track vests that have dramatically scooped armholes, silm fit casual pants and deliciously styled tees. Topshop’s London vibe comes perfectly into play in this collection with their graffiti prints set against Adidas Originals’s iconic three stripes. A highlight for any shoe loving diva would be the footwear, with Adidas releasing the Originals’s favourites: the Superstar, the Tech Super and the Attitude all recreated in luxury leathers well known to Topshop. I don’t know about you, but this definetly makes me want to explore my sporty styling looks!
