There’s been so much going on over the last week that we don't know where to put ourselves! From our opening in Chicago and Vogue Fashion's Night Out to planning our outfits for New York Fashion Week and making sure everything's going to plan for our very own Topshop Unique SS12 show next Sunday, we've just not stopped.
Right now, it's all about New York Fashion Week though! Yesterday was our first day jam-packed with shows and with our Fash Mob out on the streets of SoHo, as well as our Blogger Style Socials at our Broadway & Broome store, it's all been go-go-go.
Let's start with the highlight of yesterday which had to be Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's show, The Row. Within the stylishly serene surrounds, and acoustics, of The Baryshnikov Arts Centre, their collection was revealed – and what an elegant and super-chic vision it was!
The palette was strictly monochromatic white, which perfectly suited the delicate silks and loose crochet knit throughout, and the sumptuous kimono-like detailing. The pajama style pants were particular stand-outs – they had an air of effortless sophistication, and something of an aristocratic eccentricity about them that we couldn’t help but love. The knotted rope obi belts were a chic touch, and the super minimal soundtrack and bare catwalk – a rectangular form created by overhead lights – mirrored the beautiful simplicity on show. Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley were sitting with friends front row, and no wonder they were smiling such big smiles – the show was a success with seemingly everyone there, including the incredible fashion queens Anna Della Russo and Carine Roitfeld!
Over the next few days we'll be bringing you more front row action from the likes of Band of Outsiders, Preen, Thakoon, Theyskens' Theory, Marc by Marc, Rodarte, Proenza Schouler and Phillip Lim. And don't forget to keep up with us on Twitter to catch the hottest news as it's happening.
Then once the fashion mayhem's over in New York, it's time to head back to Blighty to the Topshop showspace for the best London design talent and the hotly anticipated Unique SS12 show. We're in style overload over here – and we've never been happier!
