Topshop USA will be opening April 1 in New York’s SoHo district, and Kate Moss is expected to attend the grand opening. Moss’s collection is already being stocked in a special Kate Moss boutique inside the store. The boutique will also stock her lingerie line.
The Daily Telegraph’s Cat Callender interviewed Moss recently at her Topshop office, where the fashion icon was busy “test driving” the clothes. The office, in a grey 1960s block of offices in London off Oxford Street is not grey enough to dampen Moss’s enthusiasm for her Summer 2009 collection. As Callender looks on, Moss and her design team sit around a big table discussing designs and fabrics over a glass of wine.
Her office is housed in possibly the most grey, municipal-style 1960s office block in London, off Oxford Street. Not that the dour environment is preventing her from having fun. ‘What do you want? Place your orders!’ Moss chirps as she flicks through a rail of clothes and apes a cockney barrow boy’s sales pitch. There is an ebullient mood in the room – more hen night than formal design meeting – as Moss and her all-female team sit around a large table tweaking designs and discussing fabric choices over a glass of wine.
Moss later explained why she rarely gives interviews: “It doesn’t matter what you say, or how you are, they can make you out to be whatever they want.”
The Kate Moss Spring 09 collection features this one-shouldered stunner:
Other designs for the Spring 09 collection include plenty of beadwork and fringe – all representing the epitome of femininity.
