Topshop Boutique returns with a new perspective on its signature everyday styles for Spring 2020: expect a play on proportions, asymmetric silhouettes, abstract monotone prints and bright pops of colour. Contrasting these new elements, the collection also focuses on crisp, clean modern shapes in luxe fabrications, finished with utility details, androgynous shirting and timeless tailoring. To celebrate the new drop, we curated a list of the places in town that are equally as classic as they are cool, just like the Boutique collection itself…
- The bar: 108 bar
With a sleek silver counter, bold red leather stools, cooper design elements and jars and jugs filled with colourful cocktail ingredients, the bar at 108 Brasserie perfectly matches the clean and modern appeal of Boutique’s spring collection. Even better, right now you can book a culinary trip around the world with the bar’s innovative “Wines of the World” selection featuring wines that hail from unusual origins alongside atypical wine styles from more familiar countries and regions.
- The gallery: Vivian Suter at the Camden Arts Centre
Clash the bold abstract prints of the collection with art that is equally as eye-catching – like Vivian Suter’s exhibition “Tintin’s Sofa” which is currently on at the Camden Arts Centre. Suter’s biggest influence is her studio in the midst of the jungle in Guatemala, drawing inspiration from the flora and fauna right on her doorstep. A few years back, a tropical storm hit the area she lives in and flooded her studio but instead of just considering her canvases damaged, Suter started developing her work in harmony with its environment. Get inspired by this mentality and wear Topshop Boutique in harmony with your surroundings this season.
On until 5th April 2020
- The activity: Sourdough classes
You’ve done pottery and live drawing – now we think it’s time to move on to baking classes, the latest trend when it comes to hobbies. Join baker and chef Martha de Lacey as she teaches you how to make delicious sourdough bread that’s just as good as the one from that artisanal bakery you love. In addition to learning a new skill, you’ll leave with two loaves to bake at home, one proofing basket, a dough scraper, one scoring blade, access to Martha’s online baking guide and a little jar of her five-year-old sourdough starter. And as if that didn’t already sound good enough, you’ll also be provided with breakfast and lunch (sourdough pizza) during the class. What’s not to love?

- The culture hangout: Taschen Bookstore
Named one of the inspirations for the Boutique Spring 2020 collection by the designers, the iconic Taschen boutique is more than just your average bookstore. With beautiful interior that looks like it jumped straight out of your Instagram feed and all the most inspiring books around, a trip to the store will feel worthwhile every time. In fact, there are two stores to browse – one in the Claridge’s Hotel (pictured) and one in Duke of York Square – so make sure you check out both wearing your new Boutique pieces to see how the inspiration came to life.
