The return of Kate Moss for Topshop Spring/Summer 2014 Collection celebrates the model’s love of boho chic and festival fashion. Harking back to the Seventies, the maxi dresses and fringed jackets, smocks and kaftans, will give a vintage look to the British high street and further afield. Sir Philip Green has expanded the brand to 40 countries, and says he is ‘personally thrilled that Kate wanted to come back to Topshop to work with us again.’
Both Topshop and Kate have matured since their last collaboration in 2007. Kate has been involved in the design process, projecting her own personal love of vintage clothing on a grand scale. To mark the occasion Vogue is featuring Kate on the cover for the 35th time, wearing a metallic fringed jacket similar to one of her old favorites. Inside, model Freja Beha Erichsen is seen in further outfits from the collection.
Another of Kate’s favorite jackets is a deep blue fringed number, similar to the ‘gig jacket’ she wears to Rolling Stones concerts. In addition to the rock festival scene, Kate has been insired by her love for the Balearic islands in the form of embroidered smock-tops, silk blouses and a white and graphic print kaftans.
Some of the creations have a handmade or ethnic vibe, such as crochet lace dresses and loose kaftans. A novel addition to the collection is pajama party style: satin trousers, blouses and coat in stylized or Oriental floral prints. However, it’s not all ‘hang loose, Mother Goose’ because there are also some tailored pieces, such as tuxes and trouser suits in black and gold metallic fabric, or lamé dresses and shirts.
The Kate Moss for Topshop Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is priced from around £45 ($75) to £1200 ($2,000) so most girls will be able to afford a touch of Mossy Magic, vintage style, when it hits both the actual and virtual high street (Topshop stores and online, NET-A-PORTER.COM, Nordstrom stores and online) from 30 April.
