Halloween: Topshop X She’s Lost Control

Ready to get spiritual? This Halloween we’re helping you channel your inner Mystic Meg with a series of spirituality and wellness workshops at our London Oxford Circus, LA and New York Soho stores courtesy of Hackney-based lifestyle platform She’s Lost Control who have also teamed up with Ruby Warrington from leading ‘Now Age’ platform The Numinous to co-curate some of our favourite modern-mystics in the US.

Having been friends for ten years, fashion designer Cheryl Eltringham and jewellery designer Jill Urwin, founded She’s Lost Control in 2014. Whilst Jill had always loved crystals from a young age (“I’ve always been intrigued by dreams, intuition, fate and ancient wisdom so it was a natural progression for me”),  Cheryl was captivated by magic and the modern mystic. “We recognised, contrary to common belief, that spirituality and style don’t have to be mutually exclusive,” explains Cheryl. “We live in a conscious age and wanted to create a space to offer a lifestyle with meaningful handmade product and events that make you look and, more importantly, feel amazing.”

In other words, She’s Lost Control’s carefully curated platform sets out to channel self-expression and creativity, merging fashion and spirituality by way of mystic jewellery and homeware, wall-art and music. With the takeover set to take place from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th October at our London Oxford Circus, LA The Grove and Soho New York stores, read on to see what will be on offer…
