The Lure of the Unknown: Topshop’s Mysterious D.I.P. Collection

Everyone likes a good mystery now and then, and this one is a classic whodunit. In case you haven't had enough of collaborations popping up across the designer spectrum, here's one with a Holmesian twist. Topshop's new gothy, tattered, paint-splattered in-house label D.I.P has a built-in air of mystery—something compounded by the fact that the almost overdesigned wears were created by "anonymous" designers (or is that just, "yet-to-be-named?) At least we think. Frankly, we're a little confused here and could use help. With the number of internet sleuthers out there, we have to assume the designers will be exposed soon. For now, we'll just look wait until the line hits the shops and webstores October 21 by looking at the pretty pictures.
