1. Cartoon shades

The summer maybe drawing to a close but we can’t help but take stock of the amount of amazing shades that are popping up in our inbox. Karen Walker's metal rims with lace lazer cut detailing are so intricate, unlike anything else we have seen.

2. Spot-On!

So this week in the mag, we proclaimed that spots, our old school favourite print, had come to the forecourt following the success of the Yayoi Kusama collaboration for Louis Vuitton. Well blow us down, when our senior editor headed to Montauk, USA with the Topshop brigade she snapped not one but two lovely ladies rocking the double print in a 1950s fashion, courtesy of Topshop natch!

3. Brothel creepers

We never thought we would 'get it' until now…As the new season's stock begins to fill the shelves we have seen an array of clumpy and dumpy shoes fearing us with dread. Perhaps that’s why we no longer fear the brothel. Either way, here are three pairs all from Office, that range from a wedge to a slim fit. Think of wearing yours with slim cropped trousers or a flippy skirt and grunge knit. Get ready to bag a brothel ladies, they are coming to get you.

4. Michael Van Der Ham jewellery

This is the first jewellery collection from Topshop NewGen designer, Michael Van Der Ham and the statement gold pieces are simply stand out. We love the mechanical look of the workings, the tri-wheel arrangement and the spiked circles with jewel centre remind of us of a Catherine Wheel,like the pieces a total firework!
