Topshop announces new Ashish range for 2011

Topshop has announced it will be welcoming Ashish back for another collection of his printed t-shirts this January.

Inspired by the fast-food industry, mixed with a touch of Ashish's trademark comic style, the collection is made up of two oversized t-shirts and two sweatshirts with images of convenience food featured on the front. These include an ice cream sundae, a fried breakfast in the shape of a smiley face, a hotdog 'happy meal' and a colourful iced doughnut. The bright pictures stand out against the plain white, navy and black backgrounds.

Affectionately known by the style set as the 'King of Sequins', Ashish Gupta first worked with Topshop in 2004 when he won NEW GEN sponsorship. His collections mix sportswear and high-octane glamour, often using bright colours, sequins and prints.

Ashish commented: "The inspiration was very easy – I love junk food. I was thinking of what I would like to wear to the gym, and I thought junk food on t-shirts and sweatshirts would be perfect. Perhaps not very motivational, but definitely very amusing."

This collection marks Ashish's sixth with Topshop and will be available in the Oxford Circus, Brompton Road, Selfridges and New York stores and on Topshop's website from January.
