We’re a sucker for mega-model/designer/occasional music column critic, Kate Moss, and it seems so is David Yurman.
Today Yurman announced that Moss would be returning as the face of the Fall 2014 campaign, celebrating the ten year partnership between the model, the brand, and noted photographer Peter Lindbergh. The full campaign, called Enduring Style, is set to debut in August, but Yurman was nice enough to grace us with the stunning teaser image above.
“The fall campaign is about a return to the classics,” Yurman said of the brands announcement. “Our jewelry has evolved, but the style is always timeless. We chose Kate because she is iconic, sophisticated, and rock and roll all at the same time – a combination that is the very core of this brand.”
Between her recent return as Topshop collaborator and now this, 2014 is proving to be a year of revival for the supermodel. Congrats Kate!
Forget those berries and cherries, pineapple is having “a moment,” popping up on everything in the guise of complicated tropical prints and solo on T-shirts, jewelry and swimsuits. Pineapples are to this season what owls were to Fall 2011—the single thing to adorn oneself with to reference an air of pop cultural whimsy. There is even a pineapple shaped handbag from the Queen of fun fashion Charlotte Olympia and a pineapple iPhone case from ASOS. Need we say more? Probably not, but to prove a point, take a look at these pineapple inspired styles by Rebecca Minkoff, Free People, Kenzo, Zara, Topshop and Peter Som for Kohls and try to deny that this fruit is the season’s tastiest must-have.read more
Today marks the highly anticipated lookbook launch of Kate Moss’s new collection for Topshop, revealing a flowy, fringy and form-fitting takedown of western ethereal meets 70′s glam rock inspired by the ageless “it” girl’s own wardrobe.
After a four-year hiatus from the fast-fashion brand, Miss Moss offers up a mixed collection of fringed and shimmering blazers, heavily beaded evening wear and versatile smock dresses that pay homage to the supermodel’s frequent summertime haunt, the Balearic Islands.
Debuting on Topshop, Net-A-Porter and Nordstrom on April 30th, the collection is heavily focused on fabric quality and craftsmanship, using soft suedes, silk chiffons, and imported beading and lace, making the $70 to $1,200 price tags seem perfectly reasonable.
This isn’t Meadham Kirchhoff’s first time at the Topshop collaboration rodeo, but it may be the most spirited. The London-based label is pairing up with the fast-fashion giant again for a whimsical collection of clothing and accessories, set to hit store shelves on Nov. 21st. Designers Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff’s rule-breaking aesthetic is in full-effect with a line infused with colorful, fun and flirty pieces like mohair jumpers, glittery ruby platforms with marshmallow heels, and frilly baby-doll dresses.
The duo’s 2010 collection for Topshop was elegant and ghostly, reminiscent of a stylishly tricked-out Miss Havisham — all deconstructed jackets, floaty little dresses and oversized girlish tees, but this one — sitting at a super-sized 80-pieces — is expected to sit on a more modern spectrum, taking it’s inspiration from a fictional glam rock band quirkily dubbed, “The Cherrys.”
With the recent arrival of Kate Bosworth’s second turn at a Topshop collection, and the reveal that uber-model Kate Moss is also planning a sophomore effort with the store, we can be assured that fast-fashion’s love affair with collaborating is far from over — and that news will likely keep you warm all winter long.
While there’s no shortage of celeb-collaborations, there are few that really blow us away — but Kate Bosworth’s latest Topshop pairing is every inch the It-girl capsule a fashion muse might inspire. After a successful Topshop debut with a bohemian spring collection, it’s no surprise the iconic fast-fashion shop would tap the actress for a second, and Bosworth’s winter line does not disappoint. Consisting of 46 pieces ($32 – $995) with minimal clean lines and a slightly masculine aesthetic doused in a palette of blacks, whites, rich metallics, and red, this line really nails Bosworth’s celebrated relaxed and edgy personal style.
You can snap up the collection online and in stores now, so take a look at the campaign video and prepare for a wardrobe re-do.
Miss Moss is playing musical hats of late, donning a slew of multitasking headgear to kick off the tail end of 2013. First came the announcement that she would once again join the Topshop team as designer in a new collaboration. And now this: Kate Moss is taking on the role of “contributing fashion editor” at British Vogue.
The fashion tome’s website described the supermodel’s position by writing: “[Kate Moss] will be a hands-on editor joining the rest of the Vogue fashion team of stylists and working with her choice of photographers and models.”
It makes sense that the famed It-girl — known for her on-the-street fashion, as well as her haute couture, and celebrated on 33 covers of British Vogue covers herself — would take on the magazine’s masthead. Moss’s combination of chic style and elite fashion friends makes her the best possible choice to join the list of many of today’s top editors (Carine Roitfeld, Grace Coddington) who modeled before taking on editorial positions. Here are some of our favorite Kate Moss British Vogue covers.
Topshop’s eco-friendly label Reclaim To Wear has launched it’s second earth-conscious collection with a lookbook that’s as nature-centric as it’s initiative. R.T.W. focuses on “zero-waste” production, meaning all of it’s flowy, flowery fashions (skirts, dresses, camisoles, and a glorious pair of culottes) are made from recycled fabrics — of the earth and ready to return there once you’ve had enough. The prices ranges from $34 to $70, which is as wallet-friendly as it is green — so take a peek at the gorgeous goods and then click here to snap them up.read more
Finding fast fashion in the middle of America can be a challenge, with overseas superstores like Uniqlo and Zara sticking close to their ultra-urban coastal guns (Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York) — but for those of you looking to stay on-trend anywhere other than our biggest coastal hovels, all is not lost.
Topshop announced today that they are tip-toeing their way — with caution — into some of the less populated U.S. cities in addition to adding new stores in Miami, DC, Boston, and San Francisco. Why the caution?
Zara recent summation made it clear, “The United States is a graveyard of European retailers. Everyone who has gone there has struggled.” And while each store, city and brand is a little different, like any market, there is a formula.
The Brit-brand’s brave exploratory front is likely inspired by the 25% stake in Topshop that Los Angeles-based investment firm Leonard Green & Partners purchased in December in order to ”[increase] the retailer’s US sales to $1 billion and doubling global sales over the next three to four years.”
But don’t expect to find the coveted stores in every U.S. mall. Topshop owner Sir Philip Green had this to say about choosing the locations, “If you go across America, there will be 15, 20, 25 malls you want to be in, the key ones, and the others you have to be choosy about. [...] We are going to go carefully and cherry-pick locations. We will take our time.”
And by that he means that Topshop probably hasn’t decided, evidenced by the fact that they have yet to disclosed any of the 50+ new — and less populated — locales that it’s planning, but when they do… we here at PoshBeauty will certainly let you know.read more
In what seems like the most natural collaborative idea yet, Topshop has tapped Scottish designer Louise Gray for a colorful capsule collection perfectly in tune the the affordable fashions aesthetic. What does that mean exactly? Youthful, colorful and playful as well as one-stop-shopping… Gray’s Topshop offerings will include both clothing and makeup!
“My idea behind the collaboration was to design for the Topshop girl a range that was young and fun, similar to both the fashion and make up I wear already” the indie darling recently told London’s Telegraph. “My mainline collections have always been about pushing optimism, colour and fun, I want her to experiment with the product, be daring and have fun with it.”
And fun it will be, the Topshop/Gray makeup collection is all set to include “bright glitter pots and fluorescent eye colours in creamy textures.” A perfect pairing for the recent runways already bold, colorful looks. Take a peak at the makeup at Gray’s Spring/Summer 2012 show and you’ll see what we mean!
Expect to see the goods hit stores in August!
