You know this filling when so many things are skipping in front of you and it is all messy but good messy, beautiful shiny and bright messy when you pray to god (or to Darwin, whatever you believe in) and just wish for it to never end and desist from all its messiness?! (this is the time when you look at each other wondering what in the name of all sane people I want from your peaceful life) well I do! And it just happened while watching Meadham Kirchhoff fashion in motion at the Victoria and Albert museum (wish I was there but unfortunately it all happened tnx to the internet inventor and my personal laptop). And it is happening every time I'm exposed to everything related to this magnificent duo that also known as Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff or just Ed and Ben (yo). Dazed digital made a short video about it. If you are savvy you should watch it.

Since they start to appear on the runways at the London fashion week few years ago, back in the times when I was freshly new innocent fashion interested blogger I sensed that something good is about to enter our lives. They know the right amount of "too much "so they are so wrong that they are so right. Well.. I guess they caught me in their full of weird fishes net.
Recently (to be exact from November 21) they appeared with a new and dam good collaboration with Topshop. It's a collection combined lots of gothic pentagrams symbols trims dreamy colored t's, happy cowboy jackets and some furry cotton-candy-look-alike platforms so as use of many colors from the pastel-ish pallete alongside with clownish variegation. If I had to define it somehow more specific I would probably say santa meets boho HIM meets unicorns with pj's and they all lived happily ever after. unfortunately after finely being accessible to us, simple mortals, my country is not one of the lucky ones to have this collection in our Topshop stores and no, Topshop don't deliver to here (shame on you. you busters) so for now I'll have to watch this collaboration through my laptop screen. Who said life is faire. These are some selected items. Now excuse me, I went to wet my pillow with tears.
