If you go down to the woods today, Topshop A/W 2010

I am totally in love with Topshop Unique's new collection by far my fav at fashion week so far.This has really inspired me to do a shoot with animal instincts!!

In true Topshop style, the whole collection had an infectious, wildly fun feel. Girl Guide inspired award badges had been stitched onto army-style pencil skirts, while old- fashioned pyjama-esqe striped cotton trousers and shirts continued the idea of a camping trip in the wilderness. Some pieces even had girls' names stitched into them, should you forget what your mum packed in your backpack!

With the Brownie motto 'Be Prepared' in mind, outerwear had a protective, functional, yet totally irresistible feel. Battered leather parkas, oversized duffle coats, and trenches with reversed sheepskin linings came in mossy shades and looked like they’d been designed to defend you against the elements.

The sumptuous faux fur teddy bear coat that was reminiscent of a grizzly bear had the photographers’ in a snapping frenzy and is sure to be on everybody's new season wish list! Layered over berry coloured corduroy tailoring, dark checks, and woolen military-esque box jackets and high-waist shorts, this was not your usual country girl look!
