Topshop coming to Manhattan

Word in from one of my "stringers-in-the-know" is that UK-based Topshop is coming to Manhattan this year.

I guess I'd describe it as a British H&M. I will do a thorough review when it hits town for y'all. Round 'em up, cowgirls!

Wikipedia describes it as:
Topshop is a chain of clothing stores situated (mostly) throughout the United Kingdom.
Topshop's primary sales come from women's fashion and accessories. Its male-clothing counterpart is called 'Topman'. Topshop offers a range of products including clothing, lingerie, sweets, bracelets, bags, hats, purses, nightwear, swim wear, shoes, jewelery, belts as well as a number of other accessories. Topshop also offers maternity, tall, petite and retro ranges.
The store has a had a number of celebrities and designers designing collections, including Kate Moss, whose collection will be released in April 2007.[1] The appointment of Moss was announced just before the departure of CEO Jane Shepherdson, who was seen as the force behind the revival of the formerly dull brand.
Topshop's flagship store is located in Oxford Street, London. Other flagship stores are located in Nottingham- Victoria, Manchester- Arndale and Glasgow- Buchanan Street Topshop is owned by the Arcadia Group, which owns a number of other retail outlets including Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Evans, Wallis and Outfit.
Several branches of Topshop can be found outside the United Kingdom, most notably in Ireland, Gibraltar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines. The chain also boasts stores in Croatia, Austria and the United Arab Emirates.
