Biba's had a rocky comeback since hitting the catwalks with Bella Freud's (really awful) designs two years ago. Now in the hands of a small design collective, Biba seems content to riff on the designs of others - namely Prada and Zara. Still, there were a few really cool things this time around, including a red tapestry coat paired with a tiny black puff skirt, and a dress that looked like lethal confetti. But if we're being really honest, this Biba collection isn't true to the spirit of the original brand, but there is one label that does carry on that legacy: TopShop. Coincidentally, they showed their collection this weekend in London, too. --PHOTOS BY MORGAN O'DONOVAN
