So I got an email with a preview of what Topshop has to offer for next spring/summer. Or, I guess, this spring/summer coming. I haven’t even bought my geansaí Nollaig, for crying out loud, and they’re heralding the arrival of spring. IN ANY CASE, here are a few choice looks from the lookbooks (prices to be announced, and I’m sure I’ll do 10,000 posts on it between then and now, so worry not, you’ll not remain uninformed):

To be honest, I have no idea what I think. The styling of Topshop’s lookbooks is always so avant garde that I find it difficult to make up my mind until I see cut-outs and / or items instore. I quite like the look of the white jacket on the bottom right, and the shoes look great (plus ca change, eh?), and I do love orange and pink together . . . but will Topshop ever really be more than that reliable go-to for a Friday-night dress? Or for cheap (ish) jeans? Is it anybody’s favourite store? Tell me, tell me . . .
