Topman Modern Prep Collection

Topman Modern Prep
Topman have launched a new collection continuing their focus on summer tailoring. Modern Prep takes a minimalistic approach, foregoing bright colour for texture and pattern in order to put together a range of smart, modern separates for summer. The designers at Topman provide an idiosyncratic take on preppy sensibilities that brings the collection right on trend.
The range takes a strong heritage inspiration; textured blazers with donkey jacket style shoulder patches give a practical, down to earth feel. Shorts, replacing trousers, keep the collection summery and prevent the heavy textures looking out of season.
The range uses a variety of patterns, taking inspiration from all over the world: Fair Isle, Aztec and geometric prints contribute to a lived in, eclectic vibe. Texture plays an important role, with the coarse heritage jackets, woollen knits and patterned shirts giving the collection a slightly rugged aesthetic that deviates from the traditionally colourful, clean prep styles.
Shirts are often replaced by polos, jumpers or t-shirts to bring forth the casual dimension of the range. The combination of tailoring with more casual items is a great approach for anyone who wishes to bring some smarter pieces into a predominantly casual wardrobe.
This busy mix of texture and pattern is contrasted by an overall muted colour palette and some very sharp, modern items – such as the stark, formal shirts with contrasting collar tips. This combination of heritage and modern gives the range a unique look that stands out without jumping out at you.
Overall, Topman’s Modern Prep collection provides a rich range of ways to introduce tailoring in to a summer wardrobe and provides a more subdued alternative to the bright, overstated looks that are manifesting themselves this season.
