Topshop Unique Pudsey for BBC Children in Need Designer Pudsey Collection

For BBC Children in Need’s Designer Pudsey Collection, Emma Farrow, the design manager of Topshop, turned to the Topshop Unique SS12 collection for inspiration. And what was the inspiration behind Topshop Unique SS12? – The glamour and opulence of Ancient Egypt brought in to modern urban London.

From top to paw, Pudsey is wearing a modern monochrome take on the ancient hieroglyphics; black on white with a contrasting white on black for his ears (only the front) and paws.  There is a faint shimmer to the fabric giving Pudsey a pharaohic glow.

The eye bandage in sliver spangled metallic fabric would make any Egyptian mummy proud.  

His eye is that of a black button adorned with a silver scarab beetle, revered in ancient Egypt as the symbol of resurrection and worn as a good luck charm.

Around his neck is he wears a chunky silver chain complete with charms of the sacred scarab beetle, and other good luck amulets such as the single eye and hand.

The Desinger Pudsey Collection is being exhibitied on the 2nd floor of Liberty in London until 19 Nov.
If you can’t visit Liberty to see these couture bears then go online to view:

All the bears in the collection are being auctioned on eBay to help raise money for disadvantaged children in the UK. If you want to bid for Topshop’s Designer Pudsey go to: 
At the moment the top bid stands at £260 , but sure to rise to pyramidal heights.
