today i want... topshop unique metallic leather shorts

With NYFW having kicked off yesterday (make sure you follow on Twitter to find out where you can live stream all the best shows), fashion week season is well and truly underway. And one of the shows I look forward to most each season is without a doubt Topshop Unique. Regular readers will know that I am the high street brand's most loyal devotee, and that devotion of course extends to their pioneering catwalk line. After a somewhat disappointing A/W'11 collection (too prim for me), I was excited and relieved last September to find myself a huge fan of S/S'12. 90s urban sportswear collided with ancient Egypt in a fun, youthful and hugely wearable collection (read my full thoughts on it here). At the time I singled out the rose gold leather shorts as my must-have piece, so when Unique S/S'12 landed on the website two days ago I navigated straight to them. At £75 they're hardly expensive for a catwalk item and absolutely encapsulate the perfect mixture between fashion-forward, beautiful and fun. I am also unhealthily obsessed with both metallics and leather, so they're pretty much my perfect shorts. Sadly, however, I've been giving my bank balance such a workout lately that I might have to hold out for the summer sales. In the meantime though I'll be tuning into the Topshop website in a few days to see how the A/W'12 collection unfolds...
