Kate Moss for Topshop: The Icon Is Back
Share This Article:
Seven years after her first collection, Kate Moss for Topshop is back - but with a difference. Queen Moss has turned her back on making her collections fall in with current trends as she had previously done; instead this is a Kate Moss wardrobe. The references are to Kate’s own personal style and her style heroines; seasonal trends are ignored. In fact, the silver fringed jacket she wears on the cover of Vogue is a recreation of a beloved jacket that she lost, and a white kaftan in her collection is a reproduction of one of her vintage summer favourites. While she has upped her game in the style stakes to “make sure every piece really special” this has meant that the prices have also been upped. The basic cotton vests from her initial collections have been ditched and been replaced with high quality fabrics and dense embellishment. While embellished pieces are two a penny on the high street nowadays, they really look it. In Kate’s collection the embellishment is heavy and rich looking, but it also leads to prices being more than the average Topshop customer would spend. In fact, the most expensive piece from the collection is a £600 dress, with only 50 available. The Kate Moss era you find most fascination with probably influence your favourite piece in the collection. Not surprisingly with all her experience, Kate has nailed the party-dress section of her collection, and now as a 40-year-old she can see the appeal of a non-teeny tiny short cocktail dress and has designed some different options: crop tops, high waisted wide legged trousers and some stunning maxi dresses.
