Let’s start off the day with some good news! Catwalk-queen, fragrance-connoisseur and Topshop-designer (phew!) Kate Moss has another project to add to her ever-growing résumé: handbag designer for luxury brand Longchamp.
Kate is no stranger to the Longchamp brand (she’s been the sexy centrepiece for several of their ad campaigns), but this is her first time behind the scenes of the successful French label. We hear that she’s also been working closely with the company's artistic director, Sophie Delafontaine, to bring her ideas to life.
Ready for the even better news? Kate’s contract with the handbag powerhouse is a long-term one, which means that we’ll be seeing her collections twice a year. Looks like we’ll need to make some room on our handbag shelf!
And if her high-street collab with Topshop is any indication, we feel confident that Kate’s rock’n’roll flair is just the thing that can give a bit of edge to this super-elegant brand.
So if you absolutely need to add another Moss-inspired item to your wardrobe, get on that waiting list as soon as possible! The bags are slated to hit stores 11th February.
