NICK GRIMSHAW X TOPMAN: WE WANT IT NOW!
June 5, 2015
At an intimate dinner in London last night, Nick Grimshaw finally revealed the collection that he has been working on with Topman, launching in October.
Breaking the news after Topman Design’s London Collections: Men show in January, Grimshaw – or Grimmy as he is more commonly known – has created a capsule collection imitating his signature style, favourite pieces from his own wardrobe, and even his tattoos.
The full collection, which we will bring you closer to its launch, has us all here at Candid Magazine rather excited. It will feature printed shirts in animal and paint splodge prints with matching neck scarves, a leopard print coat we didn’t know how much we needed until now, a bomber jacket and soft monochrome knitwear. Our favourite piece though, is a T-shirt with his Puppy Love tattoo embroidered onto the chest, and a sweater depicting his beloved bull terrier, Pig.
Grimshaw modelled the collection with the help of BFF Harry Styles – our former Man of the Week – who wore an adorably-matching outfit from the collection. Every piece, probably not accidentally, will perfectly complement the Saint Laurent jeans and boots that the pair are never seen out of.
The dinner was also attended by Topman owner, Sir Philip Green, as well as key British press and Grimmy’s closest friends: Kate Moss’s husband and The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince; fellow Topman ambassador Douglas Booth; Daisy Lowe who wore a dress from sister brand Topshop’s autumn/winter Unique collection; Dave Gardner, the football agent and David Beckham’s best friend; and Pixie Geldof.
