Street style blogs are exploding with high-tops, rucksacks and baseball caps and chief Twitter faces Cara Delevigne, Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus are regularly spotted in logoed attire. In fact fashion’s current obsession with the decade that redefined sportswear may well have nearly reached its summit, but not before this week’s collaboration causes a veritable shopping storm.

High street giant Topshop has teamed up with sportswear stalwart Adidas Originals to give us a 20-piece collection that blends slouchy shapes with vibrant prints. Incorporating the brand’s iconic signatures, such as the triple stripe and logo motif, Topshop has infused tracksuits, shorts and sweaters with a dose of fashion magic. In store this Thursday (March 20th) the collection is causing a buzz in style circles with the high-tops in particular attracting a flood of attention. Check out the below images from the campaign. Let the fashion frenzy commence.

Cara bags Mulberry campaign

British brand Mulberry has just unveiled its a/w 2013 campaign, fronted by the face to feature this season, model Cara Delevingne. A hit both on & off the catwalks, Cara is renowned for her Instagram gurning, beanie hats, inimitable style & partying with bezzies Rita Ora & Rihanna.

Shot by the supremely talented Mulberry favourite Tim Walker – purveyor of abstract magical scenes – the campaign features Cara in an Oxfordshire manor surrounded by nocturnal owls. British, beautiful and quirky, with a delicious dark side, this is a perfect pairing for Mulberry. Surely a namesake bag is on the horizon…
