We love Topshop's EDIT
Everyone's launching "pop-up" shops-within-shops – and Topshop's version is set to be great. Showcasing young designers, EDIT brings innovative design and hip avant garde to Oxford Circus, London. The first batch drops on 15 February. From futuristic, jewelled leotards to silk tea dresses, deconstructed T-shirts to digital knit cardigans, the selection promises to be the most directional and ground-breaking concession on the high street. Dress, £230, by KTZ.
We're not sure about Picture Me pants
"Your picture where it counts," proclaims the press release of this fairly dubious Valentine's marketing ploy. Available for men and women, simply choose a photo of your loved one (to be affixed to the rear in a lacey, heart-shaped frame) and text to go on the front (suggested bons mots: "fancy seeing you here") et voilà: modern romance. The women's pairs come with diamante and bow details; the men's have a bell attached. We'll have three pairs each. www.miodestino.co.uk
We're buying Ann-Sofie Back for Fred Perry
London's queen of quirk teams up with the king of centre court in a collaboration *that has left us love-all. The capsule collection includes knits, T-shirts and dresses, all with Ann-Sofie tweaks – shoulder pads, mixed-up proportions and extreme body-con lines – combined with a relaxed and sporty aesthetic that'll serve up a fashion ace wherever you wear it. Dress, £120.
We can't wait for The YSL Manifesto
Take to the streets on Saturday as Stefano Pilati launches his fourth 'Manifesto' magazine for Yves Saint Laur- ent, aiming to make fashion more universal. Half a million copies of the new issue – featuring Claudia Schiffer modelling the spring / summer collection – will be handed out in London, Paris, Milan, New York, and Tokyo along with YSL cotton totes.
