If Paradise Hotel AKA Ashish x Topshop Dreamland existed, we’d be too busy hot-footing it into our flashing pool slides and on our way to Heathrow to write this article. Luckily for you (or maybe not, we guarantee you’d want to come with us), it’s just a figment of the ever-witty designer’s imagination, fabulously realised through his latest collection for Topshop.

Ashish’s 10th collaboration with the high street heros comes in the shape of every hotel honey and pool-side-dwelling darling’s ideal wardrobe. Hotel towelling hoodies (embroidered with the imaginary Paradise Hotel palm tree logo), towel-wrap dresses and light-up backpacks follow-on from many highly coveted and tongue-in-cheek lines for Topshop (remember the ‘Piste Off’ and ‘Chalet Come Home With You?’ hoodies from the partnership last winter?). And the new tie-in - themed on celebrity holiday selfies - is certainly Instagram-worthy. We cannot resist the Springbreakers style LED light-up Buffalo trainers and slip-ons and nor can Rita Ora and Katy Perry; both of whom (in a rather perfect case of life imitating art) posted pictures of theirs last week:

From fluro high-necked bikinis and one pieces reminiscent of Baywatch to super-sexy mesh dresses, there's something for every party girl. A little grimey, a little kitsch and oh-so-fabulous, the whole kit will make you feel a million dollars - even if it's just your own bedroom you're lolling around in.
