The classic Chanel jacket is such an iconic piece of fashion. Its mass appeal makes it irresistible to high- street stores, who just adore creating an altered version of it every season. The current Chanel collection includes a selection of quirky crocheted dresses so this Topshop version is a nifty little take on the French label's present style.

The clogs used for the Spring/Summer show are already paving the way for a '70s footwear revival. Watch out for the wooden platforms, clumpy mules and stack heels, you'll hear them before you see them!
