Chicks Dig Topman: News From The Bungalow Bash

-------


Fresh on the heels of the announcement of Topshop’s much anticipated opening date for its first New York outpost (check Style File later for news from the official press conference), Sir Philip Green held court last night at Amy Sacco’s party for Topman at Bungalow 8. Donna Karan, Mary Alice Stephenson, and Ann Dexter-Jones were among the brand fans who stopped by Green’s corner banquette to pay respects and help get the buzz going for Topshop U.S.A. (although we doubt he needs much help in that department). Meanwhile, younger fans swayed to dance music and took a moment to discuss love lost and found. “I had a favorite jacket—a leather biker jacket—from Topshop that someone stole in Southside,” Julia Restoin-Roitfeld sighed, referring to the Nolita club. “I could never find it again.” Alexandra Richards had a similar tale, with a happier ending. “I bought a leather jacket from Topshop Men in England two years ago. It’s like the ex-boyfriend’s clothes that you didn’t have to steal,” she explained. But did it have that evocative ex-boyfriend smell? She shook her head. “No, no. It’s all mine!”

Good News From Across The Pond: Topshop and Love from London

-------


In anticipation of London fashion week (it does start in one week, people), a few hotly anticipated happenings are, well, actually happening. The first? Topshop Soho has an opening date: April 2, 2009. “This has been a logistical nightmare,” Sir Philip Green declared. “America is a new territory for us and we have to get it exactly right. This store can’t be a nine out of ten when it opens; it has to be a ten out of ten.” We guess that almost makes up for the speculation, multiple delays, false start dates, and fits of hysteria (oh, was that just us?) that has been part of Topshop’s coming-to-America process. Almost. [WWD]


The second British export we’re eager to get our hands on is Love. Katie Grand’s newest title launches on the 19th, with a flower-and-not-much-else festooned Beth Ditto working her curves on the cover. We’ll cough up the $7 it costs for an issue, but the opening party at Dover Street Market on the 14th—with limited-edition knickers from Prada and Stella McCartney and (sure to be a cult favorite) Gap T-shirts printed with Love‘s naughty cover—we’ll have to miss. We think there is something going on in New York that day. [WWD]
