Following his graduation from Central Saint Martins in 2016, New York-born Halpern has rapidly become integral to London’s fashion scene since debuting his eponymous collection, Halpern, at London Fashion Week in February 2017. His glittering designs have brought him instant industry recognition, and in 2017 saw him win the British Emerging Talent – Womenswear category at The Fashion Awards.
Halpern’s designs are a fusion of Studio 54-inspired American glamour entwined with couture house detailing. His creations are worn by strong, influential women worldwide including Adwoa Aboah, Amal Clooney, Diane Kruger, Lupita Nyong’o and Marion Cotillard.
Synonymous with Halpern’s energetic 1970’s aesthetic, the Topshop x Halpern collection promises playful, disco-ready partywear across neon velvet separates, printed two pieces, sequin-adorned jumpsuits and iridescent camo print mini dresses.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Michael; especially at such an exciting time in his career. Our capsule embodies the disco spirit and signature feminine silhouettes he is renowned for; we can’t wait to bring the world of Halpern to Topshop with styles that will no doubt kick-start the partywear season for our customers.” Anthony Cuthbertson, Global Design Director, Topshop Topman
“I think it’s fabulous that as a younger brand we’re able to work with Topshop, making the type of clothing we do for the main Halpern collection in an accessible way so more people can really feel the glamour. I want the whole world to feel as glam as possible, and this type of collaboration is a fantastic way to accomplish that.” Michael Halpern
The 28-piece collection will be available in selected Topshop stores globally and online from early November 2018.
