Ashish Spring 2013 Runway Review

It's little surprise that Ashish Gupta was asked to collaborate with Topshop, his trademark comic style is a natural fit for the trend driven brand and it was the perfect platform to take the Ashish brand to the next level. In an ironic twist, the designer's Spring 2013 collection opened with a model wearing a sweater with the words "I'm Serious" emblazoned across the chest before progressing into a slew of lopsided looks that included one-armed jackets, trousers that appeared as though they were two separate pairs molded together, and tops that combined various pieces of garments sewn together.

For the less adventurous, glimmering off-the-shoulder tops, zip-up sweaters, and drawstring cuffed trousers were also included making for a collection that artfully blended the commercial with the avant garde.
