First look: Topshop's spring trends

default 

Good news! Spring is just about to get a little more exciting (as if the thought of bright pink and platform sandals weren't getting us hyper enough) judging by the Topshop look book which has just landed on our desks with an almighty thump. Why? Well, it's packed from front to back with the most wondrous high street fashion we think we have ever seen. Ever. So listen up. Their key trends are as follows...

Hope and Glory - full of British post-war eccentricity, which means country florals pumped up with union jack flags set against pale stripe cotton shirting and lace.

default

Nouveau Sport - slouchy and luxe urban sporty pieces combined with super high spaceman platforms and made all the more unusual with graphic computer-tribal prints in hi glo colours like ultra violet and coral.

Memphis - is this a reference to Topshop's big opening in the US of A later this year? After all it's the first collection to hit there. We're happy. It means taking yourself to 1980s Texas for this look, full of stonewash denim and studs with prairie dresses and Navajo detailing - the tasselled pieces are to die for!

default

Voodoo - this one's a bit of a mix and matcher, with pieces that would look at home on The Sex Pistols as much as they would on a Caribbean princess, it's crazy prints with cutout jersey leggings, leather bikers and cobweb jumpers.

And lucky for you (and us) some key pieces have started dropping in stores already. Woohoo!
