Kate Moss, the style icon who exudes all that is effortlessly cool has finally released her highly anticipated line with fashion giant Topshop. It’s the first time since her previous collection in 2007 that Kate has collaborated with the brand, and aren’t we glad that she has.

The collection itself is inspired by Kate’s wardrobe and personal style, and encompasses pieces from four succinct style stories – Balearic Dressing, Cocktail Hour, Pyjama Dressing and Tailoring Noir.

Balearic Dressing is a nod to the beautiful Spanish islands close to Kate’s heart, featuring dresses with beautiful Aztec-inspired embroidering and gorgeous suede and leather pieces with fringing. One thing you need to know is that this collection definitely isn’t shy of fringing, with it featuring on, maxis, minis and jackets. Fringing makes an appearance in Kate’s Cocktail Hour pieces, along with intricate beading, fluffy feathers and head-turning maxi dresses.

As the name suggests, the pieces from Tailoring Noir are very dark with hints of silver and gold glimmer that easily translate from day to night. Pyjama Dressing is a pinnacle collection of elegant nightwear, with silky co-ordinated separates so good you might even wear them out.

One look at the collection and you can envision Miss Moss in every piece, which is how you can tell that Kate was genuinely apart of the design and creation of the stunning line.

So whether it’s lunch with the girls, dancing the night away on a club dance floor or exploring different stages at a music festival, there is a piece in this collection to suit the occasion. And hey, if it’s good enough for Kate Moss…

The Kate Moss x Topshop collection is available to browse and buy online and in Topshop stores in Australia and around the world. But be quick, some pieces are already selling out, and trust me, you do not want to miss out on this beautifully eclectic collection.
