Holiday season is nearing and one look that continued to show up at the catwalks and that will surely be a highlight this season – glittering sequins.
Landing in Topshop just in time to prepare for your glamorous party wear, is the latest designer collaboration Topshop x Halpern. The timing couldn’t get any better, with the collection full of statement outfits ready for any event that you would be attending for the rest of the year.
Michael Halpern – New York born, London based designer – founded Halpern in 2016. Not only did he successfully debut his F/W17 collection at LFW within a year, the label also got picked up by Bergdorf Goodman, matchesfashion.com and Browns almost immediately after the showcase.
Graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London, where alumni includes Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Zac Posen. Halpern quickly found himself surrounded by the greats including working at Oscar de la Renta and (still to this day) Versace.
Michael Halpern is known for his Studio 54-era inspired showstoppers. Of course, Topshop x Harlpern is no different. The 28 piece fun-and-edgy collection includes neon velvet, animal print and dazzling sequins – the Harlpern speciality.
In 2017, Michael Halpern was named winner of the British Emerging Talent Gong for Womenswear at the Fashion Awards. This happened to be the same year that model Adwoa Aboah was awarded with Model of the Year, wearing a stunning two tone Halpern jumpsuit.
Halpern quickly began to pop up in celebrity circles. Famous fans now include the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Amal Clooney and Marion Cotillard.
The full Topshop x Halpern collection arrives in selected Topshop stores and online on 7th November.
