Designer Dish. Kate Moss Debuts Summer Line for Topshop

June 1, 2009 • Fashion


The launch of Kate Moss's summer line for British retailer Topshop could get anyone excited about the onset of summer – even when it's still 60 degrees and raining outside in June! We suggest making the best of the current London-esque conditions and envision yourself strolling through Picadilly Circus with a retro bubble umbrella and a swingy, Topshop shift. Not your personal style fantasy? Luckily, the supermodel has proven herself adept at offering a surprisingly diverse array of looks in each of her collections. The newest one is no exception-her versatile pieces run from edgy to feminine, boho to mod, classic to current.

Moss loyally infuses a feeling of playfulness into her pieces, especially due to her love of bold graphics and animal prints. And while the designs in the collection seem to have a similar aesthetic to previous seasons, this new line does offer more statement pieces mixed in with Moss's trademark assortment of separates. Standout pieces include the coral and slate 'Zebra Bandeau dress' with it's multi-tiered, unfinished skirt, the 'Embroidered Fringe Jacket' which embodies the term glam-rock, and Kate's personal favorite of the whole collection-the chic 'Batik Maxi Dress'

It's really not surprising the amount of variety in Moss's collection when you find out what inspires her: pretty much everything. “I get inspiration from the places I travel, my great vintage finds. I become more inspired by every collection,” Moss recently told USA Today. As a designers' muse turned fashion icon, Kate has been defining trends for well over a decade. Today as a designer herself, she is able to work her eclectic and unfussy personal style seamlessly into her Topshop designs.“My looks just happen. I put things together from my wardrobe and see what works and feels right,”she says. And with most of her pieces in the summer line running between $100 and $200, we will have plenty of playtime in our own closets thanks to Kate.
