Traditionally, cruise collections are tailor-made for the privileged. Who else could take a mid-winter vacation to The Maldives? But TopShop's first-ever Cruise collection emerges mid-summer, and it's a clear indication of TopShop's direction towards high fashion trends with mass market appeal. Yes, the military style shorts are a bit reminiscent of Chanel's 2008 Cruise collection, and the numerous floaty, floral pieces remind us of Dior's - but none were as fun as Topshop's. What kills us is the attention to detail: The cut of the garments, the belts, the shapes, and the earthy accents. Cruise collections normally provide a break from winter's heavy layers, but because TopShop is releasing their line now, many of these items are perfect buy-ins to this summer's trends of bright colors and one-piece swimsuits. The graphic blue-and-white maillot is our personal favorite, but how do you feel about the daisy and polka dot tube top? Too Daisy Duck? --SABRINA BACON
