I’m a huge, huge Pamela Love fan and got crazy excited when I heard whisperings that she was collaborating with Topshop on an affordable range. It’s been over 6 months since she sat front row at the Topshop Unique show and images of her collaboration have appeared online and I have to say…I’m actually disappointed. The pieces are very unique, distinctive and gorgeous in their own right but I expected a lot more from Pamela. The dark, gothic influences are very evident in her main line, with spikes, crow skulls, daggars and talons being regular features in her work. I expected this theme to evident in this collection, but she has gone in a lighter, more feminine direction. Clearly influences by Native Americana as well as India and Africa, with dreamcatchers, tribal and aztec influences, it’s a pretty collection but I wanted more from the CFDA nominated designer.
Prices start from £50 and the collection is available from 19th May.
