In the latest development of our Topshop Watch 2011, workers have now stretched larger than-life-size full-color printed vinyl banners depicting Topshop & Topman's trends. The six images printed on the banners illustrate high-end to low-end looks from their collections. The banners are approximately eighteen feet high whereas the total height of the canopy is forty-five feet high which is required by the city for a facade remodel. As of yesterday, some of the store's street level windows had been removed.
