It is safe to say that there is a new boss in the Top­shop design offices… a Moss boss.

 

 

Seven years after the first Kate Moss for Top­shop col­lec­tion, and a three break from the last col­lab­o­ra­tion, the super­model has released a new range titled Kate on Kate: a Wardrobe Auto­bi­og­ra­phy. Ignor­ing all cues from sea­sonal trends, Moss instead takes inspi­ra­tion from her own fash­ion feats and style heroines.

 

 

The Moss mood-boards resounded an eclec­tic mix of her own off-duty pho­tographs; from enter­ing Claridge’s for her “Beau­ti­ful and the Damned” 30th birth­day, to par­ty­ing in hot­pants, or dressed for a date with Johnny Depp (sigh…). Such images over­lapped action shots of a 1930‘s Garbo, a 1970’s Jane Birkin, and an 1980’s gang­ster Elvira Han­cock in Scarface.

 

The col­lec­tion includes ref­er­ences to Moss’s own wardrobe; for exam­ple, and we could have picked it, fringed leather, sequinned stars, and ver­sions of vin­tage Aztec-embroidered linen kaf­tans that Moss wears in England’s warmer months.

 

 

Drop­ping on April 30, we are all one step closer to look­ing a lit­tle bit more like Kate Moss…Winning
