Topman LTD started as a free-range project with the intent to deliver pieces to a Topman customer whose wardrobe ethos works on the basis of transitional pieces rather than disposable catwalk trends. The success has enabled the collection to grow with accessories being added to the portfolio and now the collections will be available to more customers who are based outside the major cities.
Due to the level of response since the launch in 2009, LTD’s next trend Dust Bowl launching on June 5th 2011 will now be available in over 70 stores worldwide.
‘It’s exciting for us to be able to develop Topman LTD so quickly and confidently based on the positive reaction to our initial trends. Once again these new collections are full of simple, beautifully designed contemporary classics that would not only enhance an existing wardrobe but be the start of a burgeoning new one.’ Gordon Richardson, Topman Design Director
LTD Dust Bowl
Inspired by the drifters who built Americas Railroads this story is a romantic look at authentic labourers clothing. Dust Bowl includes vintage inspired garments in iconic shapes in denims, twills and heavy washed jersey. There is a nod to Navaho and Native American styling, placement embroidery and patch-working are key to a handcrafted and rugged look. Key items include the heavyweight, mustard dyed shirt, the vintage look leather rucksack, and the appliqué western style suede jacket. Add a tooled vintage style belt, a chambray cap or fedora to complete the overall Dust Bowl aesthetic.
