Beyoncé in London last week before the announcement of her new line for Topshop.

Do you remember last summer when the fashion critic of The New York Times burned Beyoncé by declaring her "a superstar, but not a fashion icon"? 

Well, Beyoncé does. She read that article and made this face.

On Monday Queen B announced via press release that she will be designing a line of athletic and streetwear for Topshop, a British fast-fashion brand that serves as London's answer to H&M and Forever 21.

The Topshop collaboration follows a swimwear capsule collection that Beyoncé designed for H&M in 2013 as well as the House of Deréon line that she created with her mother, Tina. (The latter was successfully immortalized in song but less successful commercially, and appears to be on permanent hiatus.)

According to a press release, the brand "will encompass clothing, footwear and accessories across dance, fitness and sports categories ensuring a dynamic fusion of fashion with the highest levels of technical performance."

It's expected to hit Topshop stores and topshop.com in Fall 2015, but it's not clear whether the line will be carried in the mini "Topshop x Nordstrom" store inside Nordstrom at the Galleria, the brand's only Houston outlet.

Otherwise, if you want to wear Beyoncé clothes while doing your Beyoncé moves to Beyoncé's dance tracks, you're going to have to pay for international shipping.
