Bonjour Barbara!

Rise and shine, mas petites. A new day has come; and with it, an announcement. Barbara Hulanicki has arrived. At Topshop, of course.

As if there weren’t already enough reasons to love Topshop:

The Kate Moss Collection.

Store locations that have more in common with a playground-like palace as opposed to a shop.

Just about everything my heart desires can be found there.

We have yet another thing to adore about them…the inclusion of Biba founder, Barbara Hulanicki’s, fashion sketches to accompany simply scrummy designs that are utterly perfect for the spring and summer. The Bow Shoulder Dress in a ravishing red brings out the wannabe screen siren in me. The coral colored Button Skirt is rather divine. And that purple Halter Dress is certainly smashing. But what I really want? Well, if you haven’t already guessed, I’ll simply tell you...anything and everything adorned with those scrawl-like fashion scribbles.

My absolute favorite piece? The orange Strap Jersey Dress. While I’ve never displayed any type of passion towards the color orange, for the sketches of the bedhead displaying, hoop-wearing pixie alone I’ll turn a blind eye to the bright color.

Then there’s the grey Shoe Print Vest which is actually a tank top with the most amazing knotted back. I would buy it a size or two bigger and wear it with black skinny jeans. Regardless of height, wouldn’t you feel like a supermodel strutting around in such an ensemble?

And not to be forgotten is the the pale orange Giant Shopper Bag depicting the stoic silhouette of a cap-wearing fashionista which I am currently crushing on. It’s absolutely tote-tastic!

Bonjour Barbara, and au revoir darlings; I’m off to do a bit of Topshop browsing!

Fashionably yours!

Thanks to Conde Nast for the pictures.

My favorite was the purple dress! I don't know if the shape would work on me but it's such a lovely color.
