New York City is waiting in anticipation for the launch of TOPSHOP/TOPMAN’s debut American outlet, due to open on Broadway April 2nd.
US-based fans of the brand will be able to browse the store’shigh-fashion high-street collections in their very own flagship store, spilling over four floors, making transatlantic pilgrimages to the Oxford Circus destination a tale of urban folklore.
Alongside the mainline collections, American customers will be able to choose from all the key collaborations currently available in the UK. The latest Kate Moss TOPSHOP collection for SS09 will launch on 2nd April, to coincide with the New York store launch, and will include four special pieces featuring prints from the Liberty design archive. Continuing TOPSHOP’s ongoing collaboration with British designers, new capsule collections by Preen, Jonathan Saunders and Richard Nicoll will also be available for the store’s New York-based customers, together with TOPSHOP Unique, the store’s now famous design-led collection which currently shows on schedule at London Fashion Week. Following at the end of the month, TOPSHOP will also introduce a new collection by Barbara Hulanicki, which will feature modern, feminine pieces inspired by Hulanicki’s 1960s BIBA heritage.
At 11.00am the doors will be thrown open for the first time by Sir Philip and Lady Green and the store’s special guest, Kate Moss. Once in-store, those who spend $100 or more will receive a free limited edition T-shirt emblazoned with a Union Jack crown motif. Britannia rules the day!
From 11.00am on opening day through to 7.00pm on Saturday, customers and VIP shoppers will enjoy music provided by the great and good of New York’s nightlife, including The Rapture, Andrew Andrew, The Misshapes, James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), The Whip and Late of the Pier.
TOPSHOP/TOPMAN will be located at 478-482 Broadway, New York, 10013.
