London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 21, 2009 -- Topshop and Emma Cook have been working together for several years, producing much-coveted clothing and accessories that have caused a sensation. Following hot on the heels of the success of her recent shoe collection, Topshop introduces a seven-piece capsule collection for summer, in-store from the end of July.
The latest womens clothing collection by Emma Cook for Topshop is influenced by Emma's SS09 collection for her own label, taking the naÃ¯ve animal motifs she has become known for and translating them for the high street. Deers, zebras, lions and stags stalk across fine silk tunic tops and dresses in the palest of greys and hide out on simple jersey separates, all perfect for hot summer days. Whilst prints are playful and child-like, shapes are decidedly chic and grown-up. Vests and dresses have lace bib inserts and ruffle hems. Colours are soft and muted, with grey, stone and pastel pink taking centre stage.
Stand-out pieces include the silk vest dress with the repeating animal motif, and the effortlessly simple tunic dress emblazoned with the head of a deer. In jersey, the vest mini dress with the ra-ra frill hem is sure to be a sell-out.
Following on from her currently available range of high heels, Emma has also designed two quirky statement shoes for Autumn/Winter 2009, which will be in-store from the end of August. The first has a wedge heel with a fringed ankle and patent utilitarian laces, and comes in either zebra-print or dalmation-print pony hair, or wine coloured leather. The second style, again with a wedge heel, has a zip-front and tassles, and is available in taupe or black. Like Emma's SS09 'brothel creeper' boot, these are attention-grabbing shoes that make the most fashion-forward of statements.
Notes to Editors: Emma Cook currently shows her mainline collection in the Topshop show space in London. This is Emma's fifth collection for Topshop.
Collection available in the Oxford Circus, White City and Manchester stores, the Selfridges concession and the New York flagship. Price range Â£35 - Â£80
