Designer Emma Cook hails from Britain which might explain her cheeky holiday collection for Topshop. Taking cues from everything you'd find in grandma's house—from the sugar cookies to that weird cat-elf-light-up thing you walk past real quickly at night—she's crafted a collection of sartorial whimsy (and some home goods, too). Or as she told Elle:
"I wanted it to be fun and kitschy, but just nontraditional enough to be cool. I love all things Christmas and the fun and frivolity of it all. We started with the idea of the sugary color palette—mint green, pastel pink, and silver. We then mixed that with things that we love, like giant gift wrap, bows, deer, party hats, and woodland animals."Snag some hot cocoa and a hefty dose of sugar cookie to await the collection's arrive on December 6.
