Essentials: Topman

GET LOOSE. British high-street chain Topman joins forces with Copenhagen-based Danish designer Astrid Andersen for a capsule collection that injects a luxurious feel into sporty casual wear.


Comprised of 17 pieces, the collection fuses Anderson’s classic loose silhouettes with the unexpected use of carnation pink and strokes of graphic prints. Citing the apparel of Punjab basketball teams as her design inspiration, the NewGen designer followed the progression of the sportswear from the “early fifties up until today when the national sport became highly Americanized.” American hip-hop artist A$AP Ferg heads the campaign.
