Celia Birtwell’s new collection for Topshop: we’re not fans


There’s no easy way to say this. We know Celia Birtwell’s an iconic designer and all, but seriously: that is an ice-dance costume on the top left of the picture, isn’t it? And that is a belly-window on the dress on the right, no? It doesn’t get much better under the jump, either…


And again with the "ice dance" look. What’s with that, we wonder? In conclusion, as the title says, we’re not fans, but we know someone out there will love these, and see them as the perfect chance to own a Celia Birtwell dress for circa £70, so if you’re that someone, you’ll want to check these out over at Topshop. Do tell us what you yhink of them first, though…

Celia Birtwell’s latest collection for Topshop now available


Celia Birtwell’s latest capsule collection for Topshop arrived in-store this week, and has yet to completely sell out, so if you’re a fan of Birtwell’s 60s style pieces, you might want to get your credit card at the ready. This collection brings back the blouse in a big way (not that it’s really been away as such, but it looks like we’re going to be seeing a whole lot more of the blouse next season. And we’ll probably be seeing a whole lot more of you too, if you don’t wear something underneath these sheer ones…) and everything’s sheer(ish), chiffon or silk. Prices are around the £55 mark, although there is a playsuit version of the dress shown above, which retails for £75. Yes, we did say "playsuit"…

You can view the entire collection here, but don’t forget to come back and tell us what you thought of it!

Celia Birtwell’s new collection for Topshop now available online


Celia Birtwell’s latest collection for Topshop
is now available at the Topshop website, and it looks like "chiffon" was the key word here. Lots of pretty, girly tops and floaty dresses, plus some fabulous, limited edition print scarves, like the one shown above. My favourite items are the top and scarf I’ve picked out in the picture, but I’m still a little confused with this collection, because I tend to think of chiffon as very much a "summer" fabric, and we’re now getting into autumn, so I can’t see myself wearing many of these pieces, other than for special occasions. Go take a look and tell me what you think.
