She is an equivalent to one of those immortal maidens or nymphs in the Greek or Roman myths, whose appeal and youthfulness does not fade despite having reached the ripe age of 40. In fact, to be frank, Kate does not look a day over 30.
Even at the age where most models would have likely retire and venture into different lines of businesses (with fashion being on top of their list), Kate is still active on both runways and in front of the camera lenses, fronting high profile fashion ad campaigns such as Mango and Versace.
Furthermore, her waifish appearance and her eminent personal style is often emulated by women and even girls who are quarter of her biological age, hence prompting renowned fashion labels to rope her in for a collaborative collection.
If you still remember, back in 2007, Kate Moss made the fashion world buzzing when she launched her first collaborative collection with Topshop with a huge fanfare.
Of course, the girls – and some men – went crazy and the collection was a huge-selling collection indeed with the last one being made three and a half years ago.
Now that we are in 2014, Kate is set to reignite the blaze to the fashion world again with a new collaborative collection with Topshop.
Taking her own style as inspiration, the new collection for Topshop will bring forth a new take that subsequently positions Kate’s status as the genuine fashion icon of the Great Britain.
“I have really missed being involved in the design process and working with the team at Topshop. I am very excited to create a new collection that bears my name,” says Kate on the new collaboration. “Now more than ever with London being at the forefront of fashion as it feels like I’m back home working with Topshop.”
Thrilled by her return to Topshop is Sir Philip Green of the Arcadia group, who recalled fun-filled first time when the collaboration began.
“The Topshop business has developed extensively around the glove since we launched with Kate in 2007, and it is our intention to launch and sell this collection in all 40 countries where Topshop has a presence, in addition to creating pop-ups in department stores around the globe,” he adds.
For 2014, the new collection draws its inspiration from various subjects, ranging from the legendary Glastonbury music festival to the Balearic Islands, pyjamas and tailored approach for eveningwear.
Allusions from the current runway trends of the seasons are adapted into the collection such as fringe and plethora of prints, making the pieces relevant with the current fashion fads. Nuances of Glastonbury dressing are strongly displayed in forms of suede runner shorts, floral print sundresses, playsuit embroidered with hearts and fringed leather jacket.
In Balearic dressing, heavily embellished smock tops, Aztec-printed caftans and draped paisley tie blouse echo the summer holiday mood that runs from the party-centric madness of Ibiza to the palm-fringed beaches of Miami and the super chic isle of Capri.
For cocktails, Kate ensures that every inch of fabulousness is well-displayed with the application of chic details such as marabou, glitter-drenched star prints and fringes.
While pyjamas are well, pyjamas, the application of paisley prints and the use of sheer and soft material such as chiffon bring forth the allure of Bohemian style. In a way, Kate has elevated the status of pyjamas from something that is meant to be worn in the confinement of your own home to an ensemble that can also be worn for outings, any time of the day.
Last but not least is the eveningwear collection where the mood is fiercer and slick with key pieces such as sequined embellished mesh jacket, shadow stripe print jumpsuit and embroidered smock blouse.
Kate Moss for Topshop 2014 collection is available now at Topshop stores in 40 countries as well as online at Topshop.com.
