Topshop has just announced that their next big designer collaboration will be with super-cool London-based Scottish designer Louise Gray.

Gray has designed a capsule collection of 'simple shapes in her signature style with colour and texture', which will be sold alongside a line of bright and bold make-up set to include glitter, flourescent hues and lots of pop fun.

Both the clothes and makeup will hit stores and Topshop.com in late August.

Of the collaboration, Gray said, "It's very exciting to work with Topshop on this collaboration. I have been working with the TOPSHOP team since they first sponsored my collection through NEWGEN a few years ago, they've been so supportive of my work from the start and it was great to create this collection with them! My idea behind the collaboration was to design for the Topshop girl a range that was young and fun, similar to both the fashion and make up I wear already. My mainline collections have always been about pushing optimism, colour and fun, I want her to experiment with the product, be daring and have fun with it."

Topshop collabs like this are always big news (remember Mary Katrantzou?) and Gray's fun use of colour and sense of humour suits the target consumer perfectly. We can't wait to see what she comes up with!
