Now the mega-brand is taking this affinity for all things retro one step further with the launch of their Archive Collection. According to the cats over at TS Archive, “is a limited edition collection of pieces inspired by decades of irreverently cool Topshop style. A love letter to British fashion, classic seventies smock dresses return for lazy summer days and rebel-rock icons like the disco jean and the vinyl mini skirt are reborn for a new generation.

In fact I am convinced Mr Grey is a bit of a douche……all this chat has made me think the only grey I will ever need will be the kind that hangs in my wardrobe. So here are a couple of cool finds for your wardrobe; all grey, none of which will try to fist you. ENJOY.
