Top Of The Town- The La Di Da Collection


It's been far too long since I last checked in on here and over the next few weeks I'm going to make it my mission to get typing again. When I glance over my last few posts, it would seem that I'm only encouraged to write when discussing either books or Top Of The Town, which funnily enough feels like a pretty accurate summary of my entire year. Truth be told, it's been pretty challenging to think of varied topics to write about when in actual fact reading and collecting vintage have definitely been the two things which have truly kept me occupied! And so I hope you'll excuse me if I break my blog silence with another post on the next Top Of The Town collection. It's my favourite time for style and I think this is potentially my favourite TOTT collection yet, so as you can imagine I'm pretty keen to discuss it!
So here we are mid way through September already and it feels like we've all of a sudden woken up one morning to find Autumn as landed on our doorstep! Autumn is easily my favourite time of year to dress for and so I was raring to go with my first Top Of The Town Autumn/Winter collection of 2020 titled "La Di Da". What's to love about Autumn style I hear you cry, well how long have you got? Firstly there's lots and lots of wonderful layers to work with, a huge selection of rich patterns and an abundance of deep/vivid palette of browns, oranges and burgundies. With all my slightly over the top enthusiasm for Autumn, it will come as no surprise that a lot of my favourite vintage inspirations also have style which perfectly lends itself to this time of year. Case in point, our "La Di Da" muse Annie Hall aka a very fresh faced 1970s Diane Keaton who I would very much like to be best friends with.
Annie Hall's style is awash with earthy tones, heritage fabrics, layer upon layers and super slick, timeless shapes. One of the main reasons I personally love her so is because Annie's style offers a whole new perspective on the concept of power dressing. Of course her look is synonymous with androgynous style but it's also completely down to earth, effortless and playful. There's a real innocent charm to her outfits which is super accessible and very endearing. From her famous camel chinos and waistcoat combination worn with a everyday slouchy rattan bag, to her sharp tailored blazer teamed with a boyish lumberjack shirt, it's wholesome style everyone can get onboard with and the inspiration behind "La Di Da".
 
"La Di Da" is a collection of age defying, versatile pieces which celebrate that Annie Hall kind of magic. Its an ode to amazing vintage pieces which over both a powerful silhouette with a fun and flirty twist. Think a pleated mini skirt teamed with a matching tailored waistcoat or a puffy shouldered blouse with a cropped peplum body. This really is a collection for ladies who dress to suit their mood, without a care in the world for what anyone else might think. In The wise words of Annie Hall this is a collection with a little bit of "La Di Da".

All 13 pieces launch Wednesday 30th September at 8pm (GMT) over on Top Of The Town's online store.

See you there,
