Kate Moss modelling her new Topshop collection
After a four-year hiatus, Kate Moss is back in the design seat for Topshop. And now we only have 21 days and counting before the collection hits stores around the world on April 30. We were promised a collection that would 'celebrate Kate', and the supermodel has certainly delivered. Here's what to expect from the collection.
1. That yellow dress is back
When Kate Moss wore a vintage lemon yellow chiffon dress on a night out in New York back in 2003, it quickly (and unexpectedly) became one of her most iconic. Kate created a similar one in white for her first collection for Topshop, but the 2014 version is even closer to the original. Plus, it comes in green, too, so hopefully we won't all be wearing the same one come summer. (Bagsy the yellow.)
2. Balearic Dressing is a thing
No, it's not something to put on your salad leaves, rather a section of the collection dedicated to Kate's favourite holiday destination: the Balearic Islands. Fear not, we're sure you can wear the Aztec-print dress, floaty kaftan and teeny, tiny shorts to any sunny place of your choosing if Ibiza isn't on the menu this year.
3. Fringing is everywhere
Seen on jackets – be they suede, leather or satin, flapper-style dresses, and a bolero. One thing's for sure: this collection's all about movement. We'll be shimmying and swishing our way from the office to the bar to the dance floor this summer. Just steer clear of naked flames.
4. There's a £600 showstopper
Kate Moss has taken her collection high-end this time around, with a standout beaded maxi dress that will be available exclusively on Net-a-porter.com. And it's got a price tag to match. Costing £600, this might take a little more justification in the bank department than your average Topshop purchase. Better get saving.
5. Eveningwear is all about lux tailoring
Actually, this is called Tailoring Noir, according to the press release. Which has a better, more sultry ring to it. This season is all about the long satin slip for night, thanks to our ongoing obsession with all things 90s. Team with a tux jacket a la Kate (obvs, there's one in the collection, too), and you're good to go.
