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
