 Topshop SS13 graces the rails of its high street stores and just in time for fashion week. Katie Phelan creates an exciting mix of adult allure and modern minimalism. With a flash of skin and pops of sunshine yellow it proves a summer success. But the best thing about Topshop Unique is that, unlike the Celine's and Proenza Schouler's of the fashion world, it is affordable! Now, who can argue with that?

Expressed through a journey of colour Swedish brand COS’ Oxford Street store articulates a warm sunset fading into a summer’s night. The brand’s traditional design style reflects not only through the clothing but the minimal and modern interior; this squared segmented display enhances the feel of the SS13 collection.

COS SS13 interprets the catwalk trends through its classic and clean cut style:  neon reforms in a feminine shift dress, pink striped jersey top and sheer fuchsia lingerie. The power suit takes the lead in a modern short-sleeved abstract print ensemble. Volume presents itself through the A-line silhouette of trousers, dresses, shirts and coats.

The language of spring speaks through the entire collection. Key pieces consist of a mulberry, high-neck pleated dress that drapes elegantly around the knees – perfect for a sunny luncheon or an evening drinking cocktails.

COS’ spring/summer coat is painted in summer’s most romantic colours with an A-line silhouette and abstract print. Made of 100% polyester the coat is sturdy yet light meaning it lasts all year round as well as being the perfect final layer to any spring look. 

With a curved ankle in 100% dove grey leather and a matte texture COS proves that summer boots can be done. Lightweight and stylish they are idyllic for day or night. 

Ranging from £75 to £150, these pieces are definitely investments; but that’s the thing about COS, it’s timeless. Even though this is SS13, COS’ promise of providing perennial pieces means this collection will still look as striking in AW15.
