Ashish x Topshop New Collection: No Sequins?!
Ashish’s highly anticipated new collection for Topshop has been revealed, but the designer’s signature sequins are gone…

The tenth Ashish x Topshop collection has been revealed today and the designer has replaced his signature sequins with LED lights – just like the ones in the Buffalo boots showcased at his AW14 catwalk show in February this year.
Lighting up a see-through PVC backpack and white leather pool sliders, Ashish says of his new playthings, “I think the LED lights are almost like light up sequins. Sequins are like a long-term love, this collection is like my holiday fling!"
With that feeling in mind, the line is based around the fictional Paradise Hotel, with beach towels, bathrobes, swimwear and bikinis all incorporated. Ashish’s cheeky slogans this season include ‘Dirty Beach’, ‘Son Of A Beach’ and ‘Please Service’, and wearers can also customize T-shirt dresses reading ‘I want to _ _ _ _ _ your _ _ _ _ _’. Put on your sunscreen, perhaps?
"Ashish brings his humour and style together to create a fashion collection for beach to bedroom, pool to club," says Kate Phelan, Topshop’s creative director. "Light-up trainers towelling hoodies and towel wrap dresses make hotel style the ultimate look for summer."
