Kate Moss at Topshop Unique and at her Topshop launch in 2007
Remember when Kate Moss brought the three button white vest, poppy prints and black caged shift dresses to the shelves of Topshop back in 2007? We’ve never seen a fashion scrum quite like it. Well sharpen those elbows as Mossy is back, creating another collection for Toppers. Shut the front door!
The collection will launch in April 2014 and will be made up of around 40 pieces including ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear to be sold in 40 countries. Although we have no idea what we’ll be fighting over come April, we do know Kate has already started working on her designs. As WWD report she is spending a few days a week working with Topshop’s creative director Kate Phelan and her pal Katy England.

Mossy said of her new collection: ‘I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop. I am very excited to create a new collection that bears my name. Now more than ever with London being at the forefront of fashion as it feels like I’m back home working with Topshop.’ It’s unsurprising that this feels like home for the supermodel as she has designed 14 collections for the high street mecca, up until her last offering in 2010.
Moss is at the head of the Topshop family, as she is often spotted in their flagship store, she sat on the front row this season with Philip Green and his son and cuddled up to Cara Delevingne backstage. She also went yachting with Uncle Phil back in August – perhaps they plotted their next fashion takeover from their sun loungers?

Sir Phil said of the big news: ‘The first time around was such a lot of fun, and she has been sorely missed. He also emphasised the global element of the collection adding there will be ‘pop-ups in department stores around the globe.’ Does that mean we will see Mossy in shop windows around the world like last time? We hope so!
We still have oh so many questions – will Kate Moss be the campaign star? Will she call upon Cara to be her new face? Will she design one of her signature yellow frocks? Who will wear it first? How long will we have to queue? Either way it sure is good to have you back Kate.
The 14 previous collections were all inspired by Kate Moss’s wardrobe. So let’s raid the Mossy closet to make our predictions shall we?! We’ll see you in the queue…
