Louise Goldin For Topshop Will Put Your Eye Out

If these shoes are a question, the correct answer is yes. Jimmy Choo did H&M; now, Louise Goldin does Topshop. We love these studded pumps that look like porcupine spines for your feet. They come in chrome too and are a toned-down version of what Goldin's models wore on the runway, sans crystals. We'll take…

Now You Can Shop The Sartorialist At Topshop

My inspiration board is filled with photographs taken by the Sartorialist master Scott Schuman, and my wallet has been depleted ever since Topshop came to New York City.

Lula Mag’s “Spell” Film Is A Quick Daydream During A Ho-Hum Day

I've been feeling rather blah all week because the weather in NYC has once again turned cloudy and breezy, and I've been waking at 3 a.m. each morning, unable to fall asleep again for at least an hour and a half. So as you can guess, I've been tired. That was until I saw thi…

What’s Up With These Crazy (And Expensive!) Shoes?

We love designer Emma Cook, and clearly we're crazy about Topshop, but we're having a little trubs drumming up any affection for these new platforms. A product of their latest collaboration, the shoe (far left) costs a whopping $290, while the boots (middle and right) weigh in at $340. The height and chunkiness are totally…

“Real Woman” Does Not Look As Good In Topshop As Kate Moss Does

Sigh. I love The Daily Mail so much. You never know what those crazy British birds are gonna do next! Today it's a "real woman" -- cough, intrepid journalist, cough -- Claire Coleman modeling clothes from the brand new Kate Moss for Topshop line. Her reasoning: "When I see Kate Moss in a dress, I'm…

Quick Pic: Are Ripped Stockings Fabu For Fall?

We love this image from Kate Moss' new fall Topshop collection, but the snagged tights give us pause. Since last time we were caught with major runs in our stockings we were embarrassed and had to pop home for another pair, we can't wait to say, "I meant to look like this," next time it…

Topshop To Launch New Makeup Line!

People Are Freaking Out About Christopher Kane’s Topshop Line

Now that Topshop is fully and very securely entrenched in the American fashion scene, we get to be endlessly entertained by the also seemingly endless announcements of collaborations à la H&M and Target.

Sneak Preview: Hearting Topshop’s New Neurotica Line

Quite simply put, cool London girls think Neurotica is absolutely rad.

The Rumor Mill: More Topshops In The New York Area!?

Swirling, unsubstantiated rumor has it that British mega-brand and recent New York immigrant Topshop--yes, the place to whence our collective wages go--will be setting up shop in Brooklyn next year.
