London, England United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 10, 2008 -- Topman, the leading UK men's fashion retailer, has announced its partnership with Antony Price, one of Britain's most important fashion designers who has been designing clothes for a number of high profile celebrities since the 1960s.
The new range from Antony Price and Topman will focus largely on suits, coats and shirts with an emphasis on tailoring and quality. The collection has a definite 80s influence in the form of cropped jackets, elongated shoulders and slim trousers but has still been created with todays Topman customer in mind. Shirting is available in four styles ranging from a crisp white tuxedo shirt to black and grey military inspired tops whilst astrakan and burgundy fur coats compliment this luxurious collection perfectly.
Antony Price was the man behind some of rock and pop's most iconic fashion statements. He was stylist for the first eight Roxy Music albums, designed stage clothes for the Rolling Stones' 1969 US tour and was the man behind the classic "Transformer" album cover for Lou Reed. He has also designed outfits for the likes of David Bowie, Steve Strange and Duran Duran. He currently works from his home in the English countryside, creating made to measure clothing for an elite clientele including the Duchess of Cornwall, while a small range of his clothes are sold in A La Mode, a London boutique.
Gordon Richardson, design and product development director for Topman, commented: "As a young, eager fashion student in the mid to late 70's there were very few designers I could aspire to who understood the whole sexy notion of fashion and music that's now so blithely bantered around. Antony was out there on his own. It's a pleasure to be able to bring his whole rock and roll fashion aesthetic to a young Topman audience."
The Priceless range from Antony Price and Topman was launched to the British media at a dinner and party attended by Bryan Ferry, Pam Hogg, Nicky Haslam, Peter York and others at the legendary Mayfair nightclub, Tramp.
