The Stealth Return Of The Party Top


Party tops are back on the fashion agenda, and they’re sparklier than ever. Conceal/reveal bralettes dominated the spring/summer 2022 runways, with showpiece styles seen at Coperni, Courrèges, Ludovic de Saint Sernin, Isabel Marant and Paco Rabanne.

For clubbing connoisseurs Francesca Capper and Natasha Somerville, founders of It-girl-approved brand Poster Girl, the trend is about feeling relaxed yet incredible. “Party tops should definitely have something eye-catching about them,” Capper tells Vogue, a requirement the brand’s signature chainmail tops more than fulfil.

Comfort is also top priority for fellow London-based label, KNWLS. Charlotte Knowles – who heads up the brand with her partner and co-creative director Alexandre Arsenault – maintains that going-out tops should be easy to move in, while at the same time “visually impactful and usually a bit snatched”.

Countless fashion plates have fallen for KNWLS’s trademark corset tops, which are reimagined and updated each season. “We try to keep the designs fairly minimal, because it can easily start to look gaudy, too historical or gimmicky,” Charlotte says. “Fabrication is also very important – we always try to use fabrics that feel contemporary and don’t fight or compete with the design.”
