The great Leonardo da Vinci once said, "I roam the countryside, in search of the answers to things I do not understand." For their Autumn/Winter 2010 collection campaign, Topshop appear to have taken this wisdom to heart, looking to the gorgeously grassy landscapes of Britain for inspiration. They have certainly found the sartorial solutions for the oncoming season there, offering an interesting take on this fall's trends. Presenting clothes as classic as their country backdrop, Topshop have avoided appearing mundane by injecting their characteristic edge into the designs. Peacoats are completed with a kickflare silhouette and capes updated with plaid patterning, sheepskin collars and flashes of waxed leather. Last year's chunky knitwear, in the form of jumpers, scarves and socks, has grown bigger and stretched out, whilst still maintaining a feminine line. Following this original approach, a pair of gloves are completed with studs across the knuckles and Winter waders feature garter-style straps. With da Vinci's claim in mind, I think it is true to say that, this Autumn, a roam in Topshop will certainly provide the answers for the things you don't understand about new season styles.
