TOPSHOP’S NEW SIGNING?: While the British press may be buzzing that singer Leona Lewis is to design a collection for Topshop, response from the retailer — and the singer’s rep — is more muted. London’s Sun tabloid newspaper reported Wednesday that Topshop’s owner Sir Philip Green wants to tap into Lewis’ star power — her debut album, “Spirit,” hit the top of the U.S. Billboard charts in April — and launch a collection with the British singer.
However, a spokeswoman for Topshop described the story as “unsubstantiated,” and a spokesman for Lewis dismissed the reports as “just speculation.”
