In December 2017, New York-born, London-based designer, Michael Halpern, won the British emerging talent gong for womenswear at the Fashion Awards. That same evening, Vogue cover star Adwoa Aboah, who was crowned model of the year, wore a glittering Halpern jumpsuit to the prestigious event. With the most influential industry figures in attendance at the most important event on the fashion calendar, the award ceremony certainly cemented the 30-year-old’s status as one of the most promising designers on the scene right now.
Halpern’s ascent has been rapid, graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2016 and debuting his eponymous collection at London Fashion Week in February 2017. Today, the lauded designer, adored for his modern take on ’70s glamour and sequins, has been announced as Topshop’s latest collaborator.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Michael; especially at such an exciting time in his career,” Anthony Cuthbertson, global design director of Topshop Topman enthused. “Our capsule embodies the disco spirit and signature feminine silhouettes he is renowned for; we can’t wait to bring the world of Halpern to Topshop with styles that will no doubt kickstart the partywear season for our customers.”
“I think it’s fabulous that as a younger brand we’re able to work with Topshop, making the type of clothing we do for the main Halpern collection in an accessible way so more people can really feel the glamour,” Michael Halpern added. “I want the whole world to feel as glam as possible, and this type of collaboration is a fantastic way to accomplish that.”
The 28-piece collection, which will drop in November, will offer a more affordable range of the disco-ready partywear worn by Halpern’s celebrity fanbase including Amal Clooney, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert and Marion Cotillard. The Topshop x Halpern collection will include neon velvet separates, printed two pieces, sequin-adorned jumpsuits and iridescent camouflage print mini dresses, with prices starting at just £35.
The high-street collaboration follows on from a special Halpern capsule collection with Browns which launched earlier this year in February, called “After Midnight”. Timed perfectly in the run-up to the festive season and the influx of Christmas parties, we couldn’t think of a more suitable designer to inject some fun into our winter wardrobes.
The 28-piece collection will be available in selected Topshop stores globally and online at Topshop.com from early November 2018
