So Meadham Kirchhoff is at it again. Collaborating with one of my favorite high street shops to produce clothes that are actually available to broke teenage girls and therefore that I will feel completely destined to own. This time, the collection is a 81 piece explosion of rainbow streaks, fluff and pentagrams focused on capturing the spirit of four members of a fictional girl band called The Cherries (Cherry Blossom, Cherry Cherie, Cherry Satanika and Cherry Pikka), so there will be a set of designs appealing towards every spectrum of style Meadham Kirchhoff fans will favour.
The designers said, “This collection for TOPSHOP was inspired by the idea of a band or gang which we named ‘The Cherrys’. The overall aesthetic was influenced by Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids, Kembra Pfahler and glam rock. It is an enormous and all encompassing collection which will offer a myriad of choice for any customer to adapt or reject as they see fit.”
Meadham Kirchhoff is one of my favourite, if not, my favourite, designer duos, just for the sheer detail and daydreaming you can see in their work. I love how they don’t listen to trends, or even seem to realise that clothes are meant to sell to real life boring people, because their pieces looks like the stuff of fairy tales and decadent editorials and toddler drawings of ballgowns, taken apart and attached with frills and glitter. So I can’t wait to haggle for these pieces on ebay, since I probably won’t be queuing up outside the mothership of Topshop on November 21st
