It was revealed over the weekend that Topshop would finally be coming to Brisbane in December. The new Topshop store will be housed in the old Borders site on the corner of Elizabeth and Albert Streets (was there really any other option?) While we may have had to wait a little longer than our Victorian and NSW counterparts, Brisbane will be rewarded with the largest Topshop store in Australia. Although, after visiting the Oxford Street store in London during sale season I’m not sure if this is a particularly good thing (still traumatised over here). All collections will be available in store including Topshop Unique and Boutique and Topman suiting. My initial reaction to the news was “fiiinnally” although the obvious downside is, Brisbane being as small as it is, that everyone will end up as Topshop clones. Anyway, one of Topshop’s latest campaigns, called Margot’s World, is described as being a femme fatale take on Wes Anderson’s iconic heroines. That description alone has me sold on this collection. I am all for taking sartorial cues from the likes of Margot Tenenbaum and Suzy Bishop. And I’d be okay with the rest of Brisbane doing so as well.
