I popped into Topshop’s new outlet at Knightsbridge (the Grand Park Hotel, opposite Paragon) and was surprised by how big it is.
It’s 11,500 sqft, split over 3 floors, and the biggest outside the UK and USA.
In fact, it’s got a bit of an Oxford Circus feel about it. That’s the original Topshop in London that’s been a mecca for fashionistas rich and poor alike for as long as I can remember. There too, you go downstairs for the full range of wares. It fair took me back to my youth, going down the stairs to B1 – more clothes, shoes, makeup, underwear – it’s a really big range. I almost felt like Alice falling down the wormhole and suddenly I was back in my 20s again!
There’s even a whole floor dedicated to fashionistos – boys, a whole floor for you!
Although I didn’t see anything I liked, I’m sure it’s because I didn’t go through all the rails of clothes – with such a big range, there’s gotta be something, right, or am I just too old to be trendy (or even care)?
I saw a girl shopping there with blonde/tea coloured hair (she’s asian), big false eyelashes, tiny skirt and Uggs (it was a sunny 3o˙ that day). Maybe I am too old.
