Topshop's Marques Almeida Collaboration Will Unleash Your Inner 'Party Monster'
Have you ever seen the movie Party Monster? It stars the incomparable Macaulay Culkin (yes, I forgive him for The Pizza Underground) and Seth Green as murderous club kid Michael Alig and his best friend James St. James, respectively, and features Chloe Sevigny in all her early 2000's glory. But the best part of the film is definitely the clothing. Everything is so over-the-top-'90s, a look that happens to be totally in right now. Thankfully, channeling Limelight-chic is easier (and more affordable) than ever with the new Topshop and Marques Almeida collaboration hitting stores on October 9th.
The 68-piece collab has everything you need to get through the door at Tunnel — if only it wasn't closed — from shiny taffeta separates to day-glo ribbed knits, not to mention an impressive selection of denim goods. With prices from $30-$500, there's a strong chance you can afford to stock up on the collection and still make rent next month. And believe me, these goods are so cool that you'll definitely want to make a splurge.
So stop bemoaning the death of NYC nightlife (you definitely have Michael Alig to thank for that, by the by) and start planning your Marques Almeida x Topshop wishlist. Forget oversized knits and demure ankle boots — these are the pieces you need to reinvigorate your wardrobe this fall.
1. Denim T-shirt Dress
So effortlessly cool it hurts.
2. Taffeta Blazer
I MEAN, COME ON.
3. Colorblock Sandals
To wear with that blazer, natch.
4. Slip Dress
This looks like it was ripped straight from Cher Horowitz's closet.
5. Furry Purse
6. Leather Coat
A leather duster that could have been stolen from the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
7. Shredded Denim
The tears in this long-sleeved dress resemble skeleton bones. Perfect for a super hip Halloween.
