London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 04, 2009 -- Topman, the U.K's leading men's clothing retailer has announced that following the success of his first Autumn/Winter collection for Topman, Antony Price has designed his second exclusive 'Priceless' range for Spring/Summer 2009.
This season the new Antony Price collection is split into two clear themes: the first has a colour palette of pastel shades and contains references to Antony's renowned work with Duran Duran in their 'Rio' period whilst the second comprises much darker and sinister tones and draws comparison to the Roxy Music period of elegance and sharp tailoring.
Harking back to the outfits Antony designed for the likes of David Bowie, Steve Strange and Duran Duran, the new collection contains a range of crinkled three piece 'Smoothie' suits which are available in pale cherry, ice grey and peach. These have been perfectly twinned with tonal pleated short sleeve shirts and silk ties to complete this crisp energetic summer style. Separate lightweight chintz cotton suits with triple tape highlights further add to the vibrant pastel shadings exhibited through the collection and help evoke Antony's love of the tropics.
In direct contrast to this, a darker element to the collection is seen through the introduction of a black, high gloss coated swimming suit mimicking Bryan Ferry's style in the early 80's. This feel is further augmented by two slim fit suits in both electric green and vivid purple. These both retain the hallmark Antony Price glam lounge lizard look through the use of yarn-dyed taffeta to create a sharp classic almost shiny effect on the surface.
The new range is completed with the introduction of leisurewear available in Antony's original 'capped sleeve' fit. His 'butch lace' design in purple and grey perfectly captures the party feel to the collection whilst his illustration of a woman smoking a cigarette harks back to his first Camden Palace shows.
