Last Friday saw the long-anticipated release of our favourite sisters’ Christmas line at Topshop. This is the Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s second line at Topshop but it’s unlikely that it will be their last. Available online and in certain UK stores now, my advice is to act fast because it’s likely to sell out straight away. The 15 piece line includes two faux fur coats, a black LBD, a metallic silver skirt, a blush maxi skirt, a black jumpsuit, and a selection of items in a marble print amongst others. The prices range from £30 to £130 pounds and because it’s Topshop, you know it will all be good quality.
The Jenner sisters said “We wanted to design a special line of pieces that capture both an elegant and edgy vibe”. I’m not sure about edgy, but this collection is definitely elegant and most of the pieces could be worn together. Also, the majority of the collection is black and everyone knows black goes with everything, all year round.
“Overall, the collection is very impressive and truly looks like a snapshot of any Kardashian wardrobe”
One of the pieces I think will sell out straight away is the oversized black and white bomber jacket which Kylie is wearing in most of the promo shots. It has leather-look sleeves and is longline, so is flattering for most shapes. I think it will give that classic Jenner I-didn’t-really-try-but-still-look-great look to any outfit. I also expect the metallic silver skirt and the black lace up body to be hugely popular. I think the body is great value for money at £40 as it can be worn with anything from season to season, and is one of 2015’s biggest trends. At £95 I don’t think that the skirt is as reasonably priced, and at the moment there are lots of similar ones on the high street for a fraction of that price. Regardless, nobody can say it isn’t gorgeous.
I would say that my favourite piece of the entire collection is the Mongolian Faux Fur Coat. This dusty dark blue textured fur coat is bang on trend for AW15. It adds colour to any outfit without being too bold, is a perfect colour for this season and will fit well into most people’s wardrobes. At £130, the price tag makes me want to cry (I just love it so much) but I suppose that as an investment piece, and compared to others on the market, it’s not too unreasonable. And, once you’ve spent all your money on that and have none left to pay your heating bills, at least it will keep you warm.
Overall, the collection is very impressive and truly looks like a snapshot of any Kardashian wardrobe. Kendall and Kylie said they “really wanted to showcase our personal style but mix it up with a holiday twist” and although it can’t be said that all the pieces are practical for winter, they’ve definitely achieved their aim.
