The latest Kate Moss collection for Topshop is now available online. I don't own anything from this collaboration, but that's mostly because of the ridiculously weak dollar and not my indifference towards the clothes. In fact, I like how the clothes really do look like they've come directly from Kate's closet.
The same can't be said for other celebrity lines out there. Sarah Jessica Parker's Bitten line is wonderfully cheap, but doesn't represent her daring fashion sense. With $350 leggings Mary Kate and Ashley's line seems to reflect their wallets more than their homeless-chic look. And Mandy Moore's Mblem line is not memorable since the singer/actor isn't known for her personal style.
Cocaine snorting videos aside, Kate Moss can hold her head up high. Her Topshop collaboration achieves its goal of capturing that special Kate Mossiness. Below are a few examples.
Topshop's Strappy Vest (about $12):
Topshop's Denim Hotpant (about $50)
Little Black Dress (with embellishments)
Topshop's Lace Dress (about $240):
Topshop's Metallic Beaded Top (about $130):
Topshop's Embroidered Pinstripe Jacket (about $130):
Topshop's Mirror Hotpants (about $120):
Hopefully Kate Moss will still be designing for Topshop in 50-100 years when the US will no longer have a $9 trillion deficit and super low interests rates that make the dollar weaker than Zach Braff's chin!
