TOPSHOP UNIQUE: WILL AND TED’S EXCELLENT A/W14 PRESS DAY ADVENTURES
Posing with his delicious treats at the Topshop Unique press day, Will reminded me of some sort of Hindu deity. Given Topshop’s status as a modern-day Temple of Mammon, the religiosity of this photograph is not entirely ridiculous (though Will’s deflated demeanour might be). The mannequins, dolled up as they were, also purveyed an aspect of the religious. They looked like congregants of the previously mentioned Temple of Mammon, dressed in their Sunday finery. The fur, the embroidery, the silk shirts; it was all very bird-of-paradise. I can just imagine these ladies peacocking their way down the aisle on a Sunday morning to take their pew. We also arranged a quick game of Where’s Willy? for your entertainment.Can you spot him?
