High Street At It's Finest

 Spring 2010 Collection from Unique [by Top Shop]

Highstreet fills the grey area between High End Designer Fashion and Commercial Streetwear, stealing details from each side to create a unique yet wearable look. Commercial fabrics are remixed with luxury threads and luxury fabrics are sewn into comfy silhouettes. Quirky trims and artwork are placed indiscriminately on tops and bottoms often requiring hand applications. Fits are unusual and more edgy. Massmarket companies can create similar looks but often have to sacrifice the details to ensure it is priced low and widely accepted.  They may make a print smaller, apply fewer studs, or use familiar colors to reduce costs and make the product more likeable.
