New Topshop range for model Moss
Tuesday 8th October 2013, 1:11PM BST.
Kate Moss has revealed reuniting with Topshop is like being “home” as she prepares to launch her first collection with the high street brand in three years.
The 39-year-old supermodel has already started work on the designs, which are intended for a spring/summer range available in April 2014, and consist of 40 to 50 pieces.
“I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop,” Kate said.
“I am very excited to create a new collection that bears my name – now more than ever with London being at the forefront of fashion – as it feels like I’m back home.”
Sir Philip added: “I am personally thrilled that Kate wanted to come back to Topshop to work with us again. The first time around was such a lot of fun and she has been sorely missed.”
It is thought that the pair talked about reigniting the partnership while they holidayed together in San Tropez in August.
The Kate Moss Collection for spring-summer 2014, which will see Kate collaborating with Topshop’s creative director Kate Phelan and her stylist friend Katy England, will be sold through Topshop’s 319 UK stores and in 39 other countries as well as online.
The move revives a hugely successful collaboration which ran to 14 collections between 2007 and 2010, with the launch range in May 2007 described as “the most sought-after high street collection in history”.
