Kate Moss Debuts Topshop Line. LAist Asks: Why Does Topshop Hate America?
Whether you're sneaking out of rehab, snorting coke off a Noguchi coffee table or just lounging around looking sexily tousled while smoking a post-shag fag with your heroin-addicted rocker boyfriend, Kate Moss has designed the quintessential clothing line for the glamorously emaciated rocker chick within us all.
It makes perfect sense. Models wear clothes. Why shouldn’t they also design them?
Seriously, with all the celebrities designing eponymous fashion lines (read: famous people approving or disapproving the creations of real but distinctly unfamous designers), it’s nice to see a clothing line designed by a celebrity who has a unique sense of style that doesn’t seems like it was completely concocted by a stylist. Of course, it helps when you're gorgeous and have access to the best (or at least most expensive) clothes in the world.
Supermodel and fashion icon Kate Moss has parlayed her signature uptown-meets-downtown look into a line of clothes for British retailer Topshop. Moss' line features lots of low-waisted skinny jeans and slouchy pants paired with vests and shrunken jackets. There are also a few vaguely mod mini-dresses tackied up with shiny metallic fabrics and whatnot. Our culture's current infatuation with the 1980s extends to a one-shoulder white mini-dress with an asymmetrical petal skirt. I particularly adore the matching embroidered camisole and tap pants, which I will constantly prance around in in my Soho flat -- that is, as soon as I get a Soho flat.
