I did pick up some nice things, one I wore to death was a grey asymmetrical skirt. I remember them doing collaborations with Kate Moss which was a huge deal back then. I don't hear much about TopShop anymore, I can't recall seeing their clothes on any social media accounts I follow or hear people mentioning it.
Is Benneton still on the go? I remember getting some clothes from there as presents when my son was a baby (15 years ago now). They would do the lovely little corduroy trousers and little warm jumpers.
They do do some social media activity actually, but very minimal compared to other stores like River Island who appear to send stuff to a considerable number of influencers.
I recently notices they did a colab with SmythSisters (belfast based mother of 2, I'd say shes about 30) so they must be trying to aim themselves at proper gownups! Although I'd agree, I think their brand has gotten very lost/diluted in the last few years.
I had a few items from that Kate Moss range and they were gold dust back then. Recently sent them off to a consignment store, as they were really well made and still look good. Nice to get a few €€€ back all these years later.
