London Fashion Week ends today, but it's brought a host of revelations, including:

Gareth Pugh's crazy puff coats.

The black and blue lipstick on girls at Giles.

A third series of icon tees from Henry Holland.

Naomi Campbell. Wow.

But London Fashion Week also brought this piece of joy, as revealed by TopShop's chief, Sir Phillip Green:

The chain's latest purchase, a giant block of space in Soho,  New York, was handed over to TopShop's design and construction crews this week!

The store will be TopShop's first American outlet, and it's slated to open in October.  Until then, you can get your fix online, or at Opening Ceremony.
