Topshop's Spring Summer 2013 campaign has just landed on our desks and it's fresh, sunny and filled with a new gaggle of Topshop faces. Hurrah! Yes, Grazia Daily can reveal that Kate Phelan's latest crop of models includes London girls Rosie Tapner, Bambi, Cris Juliana and Nimue. If you weren't suffering from SAD before, then beware this Toppers campaign features green retro bikinis, yellow and blue sundresses and dungarees and crop tops, set against sun loungers and bright blue skies. We sigh.
The Brit brand are backing Rosie Tapner, who is on the cover of Topshop magazine wearing a RAD slogan crop tee, as their one to watch for 2013. Topshop certainly have a talent at spotting rising stars so we recks they're right (once again). This, ladies and gents, could be the next Mossy. In fact, Rosie has already been asked to walk for Prada and this is not the first time the young Brit has landed a major campaign - the model with a killer pout starred in Balenciaga's Spring Summer AND Autumn Winter 2012 campaigns as well as the Chloe Spring Summer 2013 offering. So we can confidently declare that 2013 is set to be a big year for Rosie and the rest of the new Toppers crew.
If you need proof that Topshop has a track record of spotting the next big things, just look at the likes of Adele and Jourdan Dunn. The brand has a sparkling reputation for introducing new musicians, models and designers, including Christopher Kane and JW Anderson who were both supported by Newgen and collaborated with Topshop.
