Kendall and Kylie Jenner recently released their clothing line for Topshop, Kendall + Kylie at Topshop. The theme surrounding their collection was inspired by "the typical L.A girl". There is a very laid back, beachy vibe to the collection, with an influx of floral prints, slogan tee's and crisp white detailed tops.

There are a total of 15 pieces which have been released. Below is an overview of the total collection.
My first impressions;
When I heard that the collection had been released I frantically opened my browser and typed in Topshop.com with excitement. I am a huge fan of both Kendall and Kylie and their unique style, with Kendall being the more sophisticated dresser and Kylie the more grungey. However, upon initially viewing the collection I was left a little disheartened. I think they have stayed well within the "safe" zone with very plain and basic designs. Nothing particularly jumped out at me. The colour palette is very basic with a prominent use of monochrome.
The more I look at the clothes the more I warm to them but again, I don't particularly love anything from the line. Each of the white tops are over £30 and even with the detailing, I cannot justify spending over £30 for what is essentially a plain white top. I also think it was unnecessary to include as many as 3 in the line.
The florals bring a refreshing lift to the line with some colour. However, I find the florals to be somewhat repetitive as there is 4 different types of clothing with the same black floral print and only 1 item in the white floral. I do think the white floral jumpsuit and the black floral shorts are nice, I would definitely wear these. The white jumpsuit is £55 which I think is slightly overpriced as the main target audience for the line would be teenagers.
My 3 favourite items from the line would be the black palazzo trousers which are sheer at the bottom, the grey slogan "If in doubt, vacation" sweater and the white duster coat. The white duster coat is the most expensive item retailing at £80. If I was to purchase anything I think it would have to be the grey sweater and the black palazzo trousers as I think they go really well together for a laid back look.
Overall, I think the collection is nice. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. It was not what I was expecting, as I would have liked to have seen more of Kylie's personal style shining through in the line, with more rock / grungey items. I think the collection they brought out for Pacsun had more of a variety of colour schemes, styles and is more affordable but I am excited to see how well this collection does over the coming months.
