Kate Moss x Top Shop

Friday, May 9, 2014 11:12:25 AM CEST


Almost four years after her last collaboration with the giant Topshop, Kate Moss launches a new exclusive collection already available on Topshop.com, Net-à-Porter and to the Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
The first collection of Kate Moss in 2007 has known a huge success in the world. We easily understand why Topshop is so happy about this new collaboration that will leave, for sure, a mark on the fashion world!

This new collection is a mix of Kate’ styles, in fact, she found her inspiration in her own closet! So, this is without any surprises that we find styles : chic, hippie, rock and sexy !
The collection is declined in several themes : « Baleeric Dressing » reference to the Baleares island that Kate loves, “Cocktail Hour” who’s compose with chic and sexy clothes, “Tailoring Black” with pieces trendy and elegant, “Pajama Dressing” with floral print very refreshing and trendy this summer ! 

However the budget is little bit more higher than the latest collection, you have to count between 50 to 600£ to offer you an article from Kate Moss x Topshop collection, but it doesn’t seem to bother the costumers since a lot of articles are already out of stock on Topshop website ! 

So let’s go to Topshop.com, Net-à-Porter.com and to the Galeries Lafayette in Paris !
