Post Feature: Topshop Unique
I was a little disappointed by the topshop unique collection, because it seemed to be trying to incorporate too many different styles into the collection. Folkish knitted coats meet sharp, androgenous high waisted trousers and navy jumpsuits. Liltte house on the praire folklore plays with sharp city girl suits. And I couldn't help but notice that the chunky wooden heels and opaques were reminisent of the Chloe Autumn 06 collection.
However, although at first, I thought there were too many different colours used I love all of them individually; the rich autumnal red and purples and the olive bubble sleeved coat are lovely, and the vivid blue used in the following three outfits is a stand out for me. I would love all three of the outfits, if it wasn't for the fact that the first reminds me of the tight, angle grazing velvet trousers my Media Studies teacher, and I'm sure that Topshop aren't after my 50 something teacher as a muse for their collection!

Sleeves- (I'm a big fan of all the different types!) ruched, capped,

Ben de Lisi steered his collection in the Grungey Glam by mixing sexy low necklines, flowing skirts and metallics with gothy opaques, vampire collared coats and boots that were the love
