mary katrantzou for topshop, round 2

i wrote about my excitement for the covetable mary katrantzou x topshop line back in october, which may have felt wildly anticlimactic. you were probably asking yourself, will this heavenly brand ever find its way into my wardrobe?! 
i know, i know. i felt that way too. every day.
but i'm happy to tell you the topshop line is FINALLY here! and it's even greater than i imagined. critics weren't kidding when they said kantrantzou's topshop line would look like the legitimate runway looks in budget-friendly form. for those of you who went out on a limb and bought the real deal, well... you may feel jilted. but the rest of us should rejoice. rejoice and jump for joy!
i'm a sucker for florals, and when you combine florals like this... you get euphoria. katrantzou's name has become synonymous with mixed digitized floral prints on structured silhouettes, and rightfully so: she studied at risd and central saint martins to get her BA and MA in textile design. who do you think was the brightest student in the class? katrantzou's ss2012 line also won the award for emerging talent at the british fashion awards. not surprising in the least. 

but finally, behold: your first peek at the line. it hits stores & the web on february 17. 
that's in 2 days. prepare yourselves.
