Dungarees turned glam at Topshop Unique show
Leather dungarees, military coats: Tough urban cool at Topshop Unique's London fashion show
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) ' Leather dungarees, velvet boiler suits, full-length military coats: Unique by Topshop<s new collection is all about utility dressing gone glamorous.

Unique, the design-led offshoot of Britain's popular high street store Topshop, gave London Fashion Week a good dose of tough, urban cool with its new autumn and winter collection.

A model sporting a floor-length military green coat over a black bralet and black trousers, felt baseball cap and spike-heeled, lace-up army boots opened the show. The message was clear: Don't mess with this girl.

More military green and a great deal of black leather followed, in the form of jumpsuits, pleated, low-slung skirts, kilts, and shiny knee-high boots.

Oversized sweaters, many with a cross motif, were paired with barely-there shorts, and there was a covetable collection of overcoats with biker flap, gunmetal buttons and zip detailing.

But while the overall aesthetic was clearly street-smart, there was elegant, classic styling here too ' a black velvet set of dungarees, for example, was paired with a billowing white silk blouse, an outfit that cleverly turned workman's apparel into evening wear.

The show drew American Vogue's Anna Wintour and television presenter Alexa Chung to its front row.
