Topshop‘s celebrity mascot Kate Moss is out. Does that mean Rihanna is next in line? Some are speculating that the pop star may be in talks to design a line for the British fashion chain. We’ll admit, the evidence isn’t all too convincing—that she had lunch with Sir Philip Green in Barbados and “could” have been talking about a collaboration. (For those who don’t know, Mr. Green is a business tycoon and Topshop’s owner.)
But it’s an interesting thought. Rihanna often hovers between worst dressed and best dressed … we wonder what her collection would look like. Do you think this would be hot or not? [Daily Mail]

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn’t look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank robber-style hats). Our pick? This Topshop faux fur trapper hat, which will keep you cozy and make a statement.
Here at The Frisky we love headbands and we love studs. But are the two combined just too much? Part of me says the idea is cool, and the black studs on black jersey is a good idea, but even if you did want to rock this style, 50 bucks is a high price to ask for something that could easily be DIY’d. And more than likely, people will ask if you got it at Hot Topic not Topshop. But that’s just my opinion. So, what do you think — would you wear it? [$50, Topshop] Keep reading »
There’s good news for Chicagoans today! Word has it that Topshop will move into a Michigan Avenue location this spring. Americans have gone crazy for the fashionable British import ever since it set up shop in New York City’s Soho neighborhood in ’09. With its second U.S. location in Chicago, we wonder if we can expect to see a Topshop takeover in all our major capitals? If that’s the case, we’d definitely be down with a British invasion.

Getting caught in the rain is no picnic. So if such a tragedy must befall you, make the best of it style-wise with a jolly Topshop umbrella. The fun floral motif on this brolly will be sure to put a smile on your face and those around you. Plus, we’re loving the old-timey curved handle, which makes it just a touch more classy than your average rain wand.
We all have those momentary lapses in judgment when we make purchases we regret (see: nipple tassels, sequin leggings, full-body Spanx). But why on earth someone would buy these Topshop antlers is beyond us. For $160, we wonder just how, exactly, one would get “good use” out of them? The only explanation we could think of is if you somehow have six very fancy costume parties coming up and plan on dressing as Rudolph to all of them. Otherwise, you’d have to be really, really drunk to think spending $160 on an antler headband is a good idea. [Topshop] Keep reading »
Sad news: You won’t be able to get your Kate Moss-designed sequined maxi dresses and slouchy vests anymore because the she’ll be ending her business relationship with Topshop. This comes as a bit of a surprise seeing that the last Topshop/Moss-related news had to do with the model making and selling jam at Topshop, which might be completely random (or just a weird rumor), but definitely didn’t indicate any ending of a relationship. Although Moss has reportedly earned some $5.2 million from her personal style-influenced designs for the retailer, she apparently has more on her plate this year and can’t give enough time to designing the collections.
Here’s where things get interesting, however: Following Moss’s departure, Topshop’s owner, Sir Philip Green, has enlisted his 19-year-old daughter, Chloe, to design her own line for the store …

Kate Moss has worn a lot of hats in her life already—model, designer, horrible singer, writer (ha!). And now … she wants to make jam? Random! That’s the word floating around the rumor mill now—that Moss adores plums and has a jam recipe that she wants to mass produce. According to Hint magazine, the British supermodel has even gone so far as to ask “Topshop’s Sir Philip Green to get her prime product placement on store shelves.” Keep reading »
It’s no easy feat to find high-class, dominatrix-vibe lingerie for mid-range prices. You can either buy some plastic getup from the porn store, or drop half your rent on something ultra-luxe. (Which would be ideal were we all millionaires. Alas, alas.) For something sexy and slightly dark, look to this Topshop bodysuit. The simple form has just a slight S&M vibe thanks to caged side panels. Worn alone, it’s a badass surprise, but pair it with the right accessories and stockings and you can make it more costumey. Now get to it! Before we make you scrub The Frisky office toilet with a toothbrush.
Chanel’s fake tattoos have been spotted on the skin of some famous ladies lately, obviously gifts from the design house, but if you aren’t an F.O.K. (friend of Karl, as in Lagerfeld) that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your body with a few temporary designs. We’re certainly not suggesting you head to the nearest kids’ party store for a multi-pack of flowers, hearts, and stars, as that would hardly be fashion-forward. Ahem. Topshop’s here to serve as the middle ground for tattoos, in between designer and juvenile options. The retailer offers a variety of options, including a bird tattoo that looks a lot like one of the Chanel tats, a heart with wings, and a selection of chains for your ankle or wrist. All that’s missing are the double C’s, but at least you’ll be on trend. Do you think you’ll try out some fake ink this summer? [Topshop] Keep reading »
