TOPSHOP'S NEW WARES: Topshop is lining up its designer collaborations for spring. In mid-January, the store will launch capsule collections by London-based designers Jonathan Saunders and Louise Goldin. Saunders' collection will include black and gray jersey T-shirts and dresses adorned with his signature geometric prints in turquoise and red, while Goldin's will feature intarsia knit dresses woven in bright blues, reds and oranges. While Saunders will leave London to show his mainline collection in New York in February, a spokeswoman for Topshop said the brand still plans to sponsor his show there as part of its New Generation program. And in time for London's own fashion week in February, Topshop will introduce a further round of capsule collections from London designers Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab, Todd Lynn and Richard Nicoll, which will arrive in stores Jan. 28.

SCHOOL TIES: It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes a student body to open a shoe boutique. On Wednesday evening, New School student (and girl-about-town) Victoria Traina hosted a party to fete her school chum and London social Davinia Wang's footwear outpost, Edon Manor, which opened two weeks earlier. The party was brimming with Traina and Wang's classmates, including Ryan Korban, Edon Manor's creative director.

"We wanted the store to be like the old accessory boutiques on Bleecker Street," Korban said, "before Bleecker Street turned into Times Square." Indeed, the shop — which stocks shoes from Proenza Schouler, Givenchy and Valentino — occupies an otherwise sleepy street in TriBeCa. As for the store's decor, Wang, who hails from London by way of Hong Kong, gave her schoolmate specific instructions.

"Davinia wanted it to look like a carbon copy of her family's estate in England," Korban explained. To that end, he furnished the space with regal accents like antique leather chairs and teal chintz curtains.

Though Edon Manor currently stocks shoes and some handbags, Wang plans to venture into hosiery and jewelry. Meanwhile, for Traina and Korban, just shoes is fine: The two are producing a film on footwear as their senior thesis.
