DESIGNER: Unique by Topshop

IN A NUTSHELL: Keith Haring, early 90s streetwear and blinged up nod to Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: Luxe sportswear ruled and the Keith Haring meets Egyptian hieroglyph prints oversized hoodie is our statement piece of choice.

F-ROW: Naomi Campbell, Philip Green, Lorraine Kelly(!), Erin O'Connor, Ellie Goulding, Eliza Doolittle, Nicola Roberts, Olivia Palermo, Brix Smith, Pixie Geldof.

VERDICT: It's a fine line between ghetto fabulous and trashy, and Unique just about stayed on the right side of this line, with, admittedly a few stomach wrenching moments. The sporty separates were strongest part of the collection, but it will take a brave (and frankly miniscule) woman to pull of the bandage dresses and cycling shorts 'n' crop top combos.
