Topshop announce the launch of 3 striking new capsule collections for Christmas 2007 from an exciting stable of design talent

Topshop draws from an exciting stable of design talent to create 3 striking capsule collections for Christmas 2007.

The new Topshop collection form Peter Jensen offers charming party separates bearing jet-black sequins, bows and vibrantly coloured ruffles, while Markus Lupfer artfully applies large-scale pop motifs to his signature knitwear. Ashish’s Studio ’54 inspired metallic mini dresses and bombers are toughened up with a dark rock-inspired colour palette.

The new designs from Peter Jensen includes classic bow-neck black cardigans covered with sequins and matches a sweet glittering micro-mini skirt, while a shrunken blazer with breech-shaped cropped trousers follow, in school-girl grey, luxury wool. Knotted ‘ears’ appear on the hood of a cute grey marl jersey zip-through sweater. A tangerine coloured top and black body con dress in fine jersey has tiered ruffles cascading from a sweetheart shape about the neckline.

Markus Lupfer presents knitted jumpers in dove grey, olive and black feature tough metallic sequinned motifs. ‘Love/hate’ tattooed knuckles, handcuffs, parted lips & cases of lipstick draw inspiration from Siouxsie Sioux, and other British rock ‘n roll icons and contrast the slouchy soft knitwear onto which they are set.

Ashish creates a womens fashion collection of 100% silk, hand-stitched and entirely sequined 70’’s New York inspired pieces. T-shirt and bandeau dresses have patent belts along and silk bombers appear in midnight blue, purple and shimmering black. Perfectly skimming the body, dresses are made to dance and be seen in, while the high-glamour statement bomber is a head turner.

Peter Jensen commented: "I wanted to keep this range very fun and youthful, there are lots of playful touches which are perfect for the party season." Peter’s autumn fashion range for Topshop will be stocked in Topshop Oxford Circus, online at, Selfridges, and Manchester Arndale.

Markus Lupfer adds: "Of all the pieces I have done for this collection, my favourite is the LOVE-HATE jumper. I wanted something fresh that was about music and youth culture." Markus’s for Topshop jumpers will also be stocked in Topshop Oxford Circus and
