Emerging London-based designer Michael Halpern has teamed up with one of our favorite fashion retailers to bring his signature over-the-top styles to the masses. The Topshop Halpern collection combines all of the sophistication of designer fashions with the fun party styles we all want to wear for our biggest occasions.
As part of this special range, expect to find a selection of ultra-bright bodysuits, sparkly party-ready dresses, sequined trousers and jumpsuits, stretch velvet pants, snake print styles, retro printed mini skirts, and more. With pieces ranging in price from around $65 to $250, the creative wardrobe additions are also available at a more affordable price tag for younger customers to shop.
“The collection still has the ethos of what we do at Halpern – print, the illusion of sequins and that emotive quality we use when it comes to color,” designer Michael Halpern shared about the collection. “As a designer it’s amazing to collaborate with Topshop and have a one-off, accessibly-priced line produced on a mass scale. It means the glamour spreads as the pieces are made readily available to people that wouldn’t necessarily shop the main Halpern collection.”
“I would like to see a more varied woman in Halpern, someone who wouldn’t normally think to wear the brand,” he added. “Topshop x Halpern will reach new customers who want to experiment in this world, with this type of sequin and cut.”
When it comes to styling these lime green pieces, sparkling sequins, and stretch velvets, Halpern said it’s important to have fun, but anything you do “has to feel authentic.”
“Of course, it’s great to push your own boundaries and maybe try things you’ve never tried before, but you still need to feel comfortable and confident,” he shared. “I think it’s okay to go outside of your comfort zone a little bit, but never try to dress like someone you’re not because it will never work. If the clothes help you feel more confident and ‘out there’, I think that’s the most exciting thing a designer can ever ask for.”
We could see any of these eye-catching styles working for a celebratory New Year’s Eve party – or any evening out where the goal is to stand out in a crowd!
