Being sat behind Anna Dello Russo and her standard crazy hat on the FROW (I was on the... SROW?) at the super duper Topshop Unique show has been my LFW highlight so far.

Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn

After sipping Champagne whilst people-watching (Olivia Palermo is indeed as glossy and perfect in the flesh) in the new Topshop Show Space at Bedford Square, the show kicked off at 3pm yesterday with Jourdan Dunn opening in the first of lots and lots of white.

Kate Phelan's second collection as Creative Director of Topshop after her move from 20 years at Vogue was as strong as her first in February; girly meets futuristic minimalism with a bit of grunge thrown in and exactly what the Topshop/ Topshop Unique customer loves and wears.

The silhouette was modern and sports-influenced; cocoon sweatshirts, loose fitting tailored trouser suits and casual dress shapes in a muted palette of black and white, nude, lemon sorbet yellow, dove grey, metallic charcoal, soft dusky pink and silver with accents of cobalt and navy blue.

It was wearable and laidback with the odd Space Age party look thrown in.  Checks, plaid and cross motifs ran throughout, next to chiffon and light, feminine fabrics with sheer mesh panels and sequin embellishment.

The bags were neutral oversized clutches and nothing too inspiring but the shoes were covetable; shiny silver strappy sandals, pewter grey courts or patent black with multi ankle straps.  

love the bold floral print on this slouchy trouser suit
