On April 30, the Kate Moss x Topshop Collection will hit Nordstrom stores, Nordstrom.com and Net-a-Porter.com. The collection is sure to be a showstopper, proving how chic it can be when an iconic supermodel and influential British brand join forces. However, this isn’t the first time the two have collaborated on a gotta-have-it collection.
The inception of the Kate Moss x Topshop pairing began in 2007. Since then, the model has matured in more ways than one, making her upcoming collection the most anticipated one yet. “My first collection was seven years ago, and I have grown up since then, and things that I want to wear are different,” Moss says. “It is a natural evolvement. I learnt a lot from my experience the first time around, so I didn’t come in blind this time – I knew the process.”
The process, Moss says, involves hanging out with the design team, going through various stages of sampling and watching the final collection come together. Her hands-on attitude proves why her namesake isn’t the only selling point; instead it is the quality and unique designs inspired by her personal wardrobe that are the driving forces behind the collaboration. For example, a deep blue colored fringed jacket, featured in the upcoming collection, references a jacket she owns that she has worn to three Rolling Stones concerts.
Fringe is a continuing theme in the Kate Moss x Topshop collab, along with paisley, delicate dresses and shorts. The collection is divided into four themes—Tailoring Noir, Balearic Dressing, Cocktail Hour and Pyjama Dressing—with each embracing a touch of Moss’ elegance, power and grace. Although shoppers won’t be able to hit the racks until later this month, Harper’s Bazaar is offering pre-orders starting April 15 on its ecommerce site, ShopBazaar.com.
