Kate Moss and TOPSHOP are set to launch their Spring/Summer 2014 collection, with a range of pieces encapsulating the British fashion icon’s unique style. Taking inspiration from her renowned wardrobe, Kate has worked hard with the TOPSHOP design and buying teams, pushing boundaries from her previous Kate Moss TOPSHOP collection in terms of fabrications and attention to detail. The result is this much updated, premium collection – re-affirming her unrivalled position as THE true British icon.
Key designs for this collection begin with Balearic Dressing, a reflection of Kate’s love for the Balearic Islands comes a series of carefully embroidered smock-tops; silk blouses and a white kaftan that is based on a vintage find she wears every summer. The bold Aztecs dress has a handmade feel and the heavily embroidered crochet lace dresses, which either skim the thigh or the ankle, are available in cream or black.
Pyjama dressing adds a totally new element to the Kate Moss TOPSHOP range. Featuring silk satin sourced in London’s Soho that carries two distinct prints: a subtle, distorted floral design and a vivid Oriental-inspired flower pattern. Both prints will be available in high-waisted pants, blouses and an ultimate pyjama coat.
Cocktail Hour is flirtatious and sexy with hemlines either slashed at the thigh or falling to the floor. The intentional vintage effects, opulent trims and detailing such as cobweb beadwork, sequin bead fringing and crepe satin splicing, all provide a delicate and deluxe element to the designs.
Tailoring Noir introduces a beautiful selection of tailoring including tuxes and trouser suits in black and black gold metallics mixes, a bias cut liquid metallic lame dress and floral printed shirts – offering a chic, smart alternative to dressing up for a summer evening.
Items based on Kate’s wardrobe have been joined by vintage-inspired hero pieces that she herself often looks for when shopping in second hand stores. These pieces when found are threadbare, or with embellishments falling off, so it was important to Kate that these items were re-created and added to her collection this season.
Kate felt that the butter-soft suede found in this collection offered a more lightweight choice over leather and for summer; and a change from denim. The weave waistcoat is a real statement piece and epitomizes Kate’s seventies wardrobe staples. The suede “runner” shorts, available in olive and black, carry a tiny braid down the sides, again stepping up the deluxe element for Spring/Summer. And the deep blue colored fringed jacket references one she has worn to Three Rolling Stones concert and refers to her as “gig jacket”.
Set to launch on 30th April 2014, the Kate Moss Topshop Spring/Summer 2014 collection will be sold globally in all TOPSHOP stores and online at Topshop.com, new and first time retail partners for this collection will include NET-A-PORTER.COM, Nordstorm stores and Nordstorm.com.
