Yes, Yes, YES!!! The long awaited Kate Moss for Topshop collaboration is here... Cue animated air punching. If you can't get to your local Topshop to snap up a piece of British iconography you'd better have swift fingers because, it being the 21st century and all you can get this online. Still if I recall correctly the last collection sold out within hours so you'd better get your sKates on (sorry).
Here's my curated edit of the best of Kate Moss for Topshop.
Printed trousers are the modern way to update your look, yes black trousers are a safe bet and will never be out of style but if you're looking for a new you or a way to add some serious fashion klout to your SS14 wardrobe I strongly suggest investing in a pair of printed trousers. There is more than one way to wear printed bottoms, jeans, peg leg, culottes to name a few but La Moss's edict is clear; this season opt for a wide leg, relaxed cut. You are channeling boudoir elegance circa 1940's pin ups Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn. Pair with a simple neutral top for easy chic or if you're a little braver breton stripes for a mixed pattern look.
I think this is one of those amazing dresses that you could ordinarily bypass on the hanger but would make you swoon once you try it on. The movement engendered by the shredded fringe maxi skirt is scintillating. It will work in the city and at the beach, dressed up or down it will draw attention as flashes of leg move under the fabric.
Splice Skirt Maxi Dress by Kate Moss for Topshop
This aztec inspired embroidered smock dress is perfect for festival season as well as a day-to-night party frock for beach holidays. I'd wear it with Hunter wellies for a wet weekend at Glastonbury and Birkenstocks for Ibiza.
Embroidered Smock Dress by Kate Moss for Topshop
A cropped, fitted blazer is a wardrobe workhorse. This metallic blazer will instantly elevate a casual look, picture it with cropped boyfriend jeans, a simple monochrome t-shirt, clutch and classic black courts. This one statement piece takes the effort out of choosing an outfit. There are matching cropped trousers too... joy!
