This week I spent a few days in Las Vegas for the semi-annual convergence of the fashion industry at the WWDMAGIC trade show. Having been a fan of Topshop's ahead-of-the-trend-cycle merchandise since 2008, every visit to Las Vegas demands an extended shopping trip to their Fashion Show mall outpost. Running on about four hours of sleep due to the blur of activity that surrounds Las Vegas during WWDMAGIC, I got a little snap-happy with my camera as I was scouting fall trends. Here's a peek at a few pieces that stood out to me.
A studded denim tunic is layered unexpectedly over a lace midi skirt for a slight nod to grunge.
A whimsical duck motif adorns these gathered shorts.
This pajama-esque top really caught my attention with its enlarged paisley print.
I came really close to buying this scarf print skater dress. I can imagine it being worn under a biker jacket and with dark tights for winter.
Shiny textures and tough outerwear add visual interest to Topshop's windows. From looking at the selection of chunky knits and jackets in the store, you'd never know that it was over 100 degrees outside that day.
Keep an eye out for more photos from my trip, as well as tips and fall 2012/spring 2013 trend information.
