Louise Goldin‘s new collection for Topshop, due in stores and online on February 5th. I for one will be in gay Paree, so I’ll be doing panning for Goldin on the world wide interwebz.

The designs raise a few important points (and no, that’s not a pun): namely, that the 1990s are back (as if 2009′s obsession with plaid and denim shirts hadn’t told us that already), and that the stiletto is the new cone heel. Personally, I loathe stilettos, but I loathed wedges when they first came into fashion, and look at me now, clip-clopping down the street on New Year’s eve in six-inch wedge heels (my New Year’s resolution to wear more heels is coming along nicely; today at work I wore six-inch cone heels, until I was brutally cast out by the worst cold I’ve ever had).Also, studs ain’t going anywhere, which is great news for all of you who bought into the trend in 2009. I would suspect that 2010 will see the death of the obvious platform, and a move towards flats, stilettos and (ugh) kitten heels. A cleaner silhouette, if you will.

Keep an eye out for more Topshop collaborations – coming up on Fash Mob, we’ve got Jonathan Saunders, the latest from Ashish (because who didn’t love those animal print wedges?) and Ann-Sofie Back.
