Kate Moss Creates New Topshop Collection
Topshop and Kate Moss are teaming up again with a new collection set to launch in April.
The collection will be about 40 ready-to-wear styles and will be sold in the retailer's stores in 40 countries; via Topshop.com and through wholesale partnerships including 41 Nordstrom stores, and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
Sir Philip Green, owner of Topshop, told WWD he was pleased to be working with Moss again, adding, "The first time around was such a lot of fun, and she has been sorely missed." Noting Topshop's global expansion since the first Moss collection in 2007, Green said that this launch would also involve "pop-ups in department stores around the globe."
Moss said, "I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop. Now more than ever, with London being at the forefront of fashion...it feels like I'm back home working with Topshop."
According to an industry source, Green and Moss decided to launch the new line when they were on holiday together in August.
"Kate was talking about London as a style city, and how it was becoming ever more relevant on the international stage," said the source. "She's friends with Philip, so they said, 'Let's do it.'"
