Topshop issued its best ever collection under the creative direction of newby Kate Phelan, packed with deconstructed tailoring, covetable maxicoats and pretty apron dresses.

In fact, the high street label's collection was so impeccably tailored that it looked incredibly expensive - and was bang on trend.

With the likes of Alexa Chung sitting in the front row, the line-up took shape with army green suiting and flowing shirt dresses teamed with stiletto lace-up boots.

Aubergine-hued duds were up next, with a floor-grazing zippered maxi-coat and pleated skirt with leather panels wowing the fashionistas in the crowd. A cute cross print appeared on white apron dresses and chunky knits, adding texture to simple separates.

Trousers were, for the most part, wide-legged, and fused leather with silk, wool or velvet, seamlessly. And tfor those who still find midiskirts to twee, Topshop has the answer - plenty of zippers and asymmetric hems turned them into a cool and wearable options. Meanwhile, mannish tweed trousers were sexed up with leather bustier tops.

For eveningwear, the label proposed a drop-dead velvet and silk boiler suit or velvet trousers with silk blouses boasting the cross stitch pattern. Glitzy gold cocktail dresses and a feathery white minidress are the perfect dance-all-night pieces.
