Well, the wait is nearly over for Amsterdam’s very own Topshop store! This October, the famous British fashion retailer will open its doors to those who love to shop for high fashion at low prices. The massive, three-level store will be conveniently located on the bustling shopping street, de Kalverstraat, at the former location of bookstore giants, de Slegte.
Phew. Now you can relax and enjoy the summer, knowing that your winter wardrobe will be sorted.
Although established in London in 1964, it wasn’t until recently that Amsterdam experienced its first taste of the catwalk-inspired brand. In 2011, Topshop launched a small store in SPRMRKT, and last year introduced another larger store-in-store in de Bijenkorf. With only small stores until now, this shopping event of the year is exciting news for the fashion-conscious guys and gals of Amsterdam.
Why do we just love Topshop so very much? Whether you are tall or petite, curvy or slim, you can find the perfect outfit for the beach, office or candlelit dinner for two. Their specialist lines cater for the taller ladies among us who can reach things on the top shelf without help (lucky you), or those of us who appreciate the extra few inches from a pair of killer heels. What’s more, you can buy all your gorgeous jewellery, accessories, and underwear to complete your outfit.
And don’t forget the shoes…
However, if you want to stand out from the crowd, Topshop also have their own small design teams that produce featured collections, one of the best known is the Kate Moss collection. These items offer clothing with more of a boutique, unique, and exclusive feel. For those occasions that you need a bit more va-va-voom, who better to take fashion advice from than a Supermodel?!
Not forgetting the fellas, Topman states that it is the ‘one stop shop for achieving great style’. From suits and jeans to gorgeous Tees and jumpers, you can be confident that you will find what you are looking for here. No trawling shop after shop, everything the modern man needs to look dapper will be under one roof in October.
But it isn’t only us mere mortals who shop at Topshop – Oh no, no, no. Recently, Beyoncé was spied sporting head-to-toe Topshop while she visited Amsterdam ‘for a spot of tourism’, according to Graziadaily.co.uk. Additionally, fans of the popular brand include Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth and Taylor Swift, so you will be in good company!
