Wild things emerged at Topshop Unique's A/W10 show and we were presented with distressed leather parkas and long exhausted knitwear with wolves and owls tangled amongst the complex patterns of the garments. The hair and make-up is what played the big role to the theme of the collection; the models had some really long bushy eyebrows which made them look as if they were children raised by wolves, the hair had a similar thing going-on; big and quite out-there then accessorzied with deer-like horned head pieces by Emma Cook.
Country classics were reinvented resulting in a shearling-lined duffel coat, a herringbone jacket that was harnessed to the body and farmer's daughter 'esque dresses in jersey fabric which were given that extra wow factor by binding strips of leather giving a corseting effect. I loved the thick, chunky thigh-high socks and long texturized red and black dress. One fashion piece that will definitely set tongues wagging come next winter is the coat that trailed a giant tangle of feral bits and bobs - chaotic but I thought it gave off quiet a statement. Overall, a fantastic collection with lots of wearable an chic pieces to wear for when winter returns.
