I headed down to Topshop’s S/S12 press day with a colleague yesterday – you might be wondering ‘why is Yin going to womenswear press days?’. For the freebies and food of course, no I kid. My friend who invited me to my first ever press day a few years back is now working at Topshop….so put 2 and 2 together! The collection is full of colours, vibrant prints & extravagant patterns which all seems like natural progression from excessive colour blocking in SS11. This collection seems like it was inspired by 80s/90s sportswear, Fresh Prince vibes throughout. More on the reverse.

Eeesh, it must be difficult to be a fashion forward woman with collections changing every season. With menswear, we have statement pieces that will always be in style but womenswear always tends to change big time each season. As always, fashion and trends recycle itself. I think some days I dress like my late Granddad.
I’m not a big talker when it comes to womenswear so I’ll let you guys decide for yourselves. Have a gander at the imagery below.
