Topman isn’t usually the first place to look for iconic design, but that’s where you’ll find it from this week, courtesy of The Look Presents Nigel Waymouth.
For the uninitiated, Nigel Waymouth was a giant of 1960s fashion and design, responsible for the (in)famous Kings Road boutique Granny Takes A Trip (a favourite haunt for the likes of the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Anita Pallenberg, Brigitte Bardot and Marianne Faithfull) and the Hapshash graphic design company, producing posters and record sleeves for the The Who and Jimi Hendrix.
Waymouth’s return to the fashion arena is courtesy of this collaboration with The Look (Paul Gorman and Soho boutique owner Max Karie), with a range of five t-shirts that take inspiration from those late 60s psychedelic designs, complete with The Look label and Waymouth signature.
And as this is Topman, the t-shirts have high street-friendly prices too. You can a t-shirt online or instore for £20 when they go on sale on Friday August 8th.
