Kate Moss has a new collection for Topshop, full of the regulation shorty shorts and tank tops that everyone wears all summer when it’s hot. Coming a year after her first collection, which inspired hysteria on the High Street, this one has barely got a look in. London entertainment site This Is London has pictures from outside the store this year and last year, 2008 noticeably without any crowd.
I’m beginning to think that a celebrity range of clothing is losing it’s appeal. Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag from The Hills all have a range coming out, Nicole Richie is planning a maternity line, and the ugliest clothing I have ever seen, celebrity designed or not, has got to be Chloe Sevigny’s floral nightmare. I can’t imagine anyone would ever wear it, unless it’s nightwear, as between the sheets it would serve as a pretty good contraceptive.
Last March Forbes ran a piece about celebrity fashion lines, suggesting they were just another way for a celebrity to make money and keep their profile high. While I don’t think this is a blanket rule for all celebs, I would have to admit that a lot of their clothes seem more ‘inspired by’ then actually designed by the celebrity. How many people outside of the fashion industry would have the skills required to create a fashion range anyway?
Kate Moss’ latest range from Topshop is pretty cute, you can check it out here.
Note by Celebitchy: Some of the dresses and tank tops are cute, but there are also some truly awful shirts in Moss’ collection. Here are some of her clothes from her new TopShop line.
I will never shop at Topshop because I would never fit into it. LOL! Im afraid I am TOO FAT to fit into anything designed by Kate Moss. I have yet to achieve that druggo-skinniness yet. Perhaps if I laid off the pasta and the computer I may one day fit into her striped pants…
That is because no one is really interested in Kate Moss anymore. She is a has been.
Apart from having lost her appeal – and I do think she has – most of this new range is pretty dire and uninspiring. Not edgy, dull fabrics and quite dated looking. Nothing I’d go out of my way for.
You can get clothes that look exactly the same cheaper in Primark, that’s why nobody cares.
Primark lol, that is very true. Top shop has the same cheap material and style as Primark but with 10 times the higher the price.
She has completely spoiled what little appeal she had in the first damn place.
What confuses me about this woman is she is britney spears without the mental issues and yet is seems no one ever mentions what a fucked up mother she must be.
from what I hear she basically open her closet and copied the clothes she already has there and called it her own design line there was nothing orginal on her part and the designers of the clothes in her closet are pissed she did that.
I clicked the topshop link and had a look at the whole line. Maybe 10% were cute, the rest looked cheap and awkward. I don’t know what she thinking with those button down shirts.
