Topshop offers graduate collections of three CSM alumni

Topshop will be stocking key pieces from the graduate collections of three of this year's most talented Central Saint Martins alumni for the first time.

All three collections are available in-store from 8th December, while Lilly Heine and Matthew Harding's collections are also available on Topshop.com. Unavailable anywhere else in the world, customers can get their hands on one-off pieces by these talented graduates.

Lilly Heine's graduate collection won her international recognition. Lilly is trained in textile design and her aesthetic is characterised by unusual shape and surface detail. For her MA collection, Lilly drew inspiration from Picasso's sketches of women and she interpreted the exploration of body through the strong silhouette in her design. Topshop will be stocking three of her designs in the signature subtle fleshy tones for which she is renowned. Two dove grey shift dresses with demi-sleeves are available in wool crepe with sublimation print leaves laser cut in yellow or lilac which move when in motion. A fitted T is the same cut and the front appliqued with square leaves.

Matthew Harding's graduate collection explored the dimensions of sheer jersey and sheep wool through the use of copper corrugated metal. His intentions were to focus on the strength of women. He highlighted a balance between tough and feminine and cited Wonder Woman as a point of reference, who he describes as "so confident and tough, but somehow fragile and still very sexy." Three pieces from his graduate collection will be available. A black crepe mid-calf length dress features a corrugated metal frame, a white crepe long sleeved top is structured with an underlying copper frame whilst a black wool jacket features shearling across the shoulders.

Simone Rocha's graduate collection featured minimalistic tailoring in black and white which was lightened by the clever use of sheer panels. With obvious comparisons drawn to her father John Rocha's designs, hers are said to be sharper. Simone designed headwear as an antidote to this aesthetic, bringing softness and romanticism. Simone cites being inspired by the tradition for women from the Aran Islands to wear petticoats over their heads when in mourning. A selection of Simone's headwear will be available at Topshop.

Topshop is continually recognised as being an authority on women's fashion on clothing such as jeans, dresses, scarves, lingerie, knitwear, dresses, bags and shoes.
