Even our Dad’s know that Kate Moss has inspired many a designer, photographer and trend phenomenon in her time. And when we heard from the man behind super-cool denim label C.R.A.F.T, Michael Kopplstatter, that his latest collection is inspired by no other than La Moss and that she’s barely been seen out of her two pairs of jeans from said label since February (well, we’re sure will have done now and then, but you get what we mean) we couldn’t help but enjoy the irony. Kate Moss wearing a collection inspired by Kate Moss! And it’s not her own Kate Moss collection! See? Her top two pairs of jeans are some grey skinnies called Ash Nervous Breakdown and a pair of biker jeans called Hells Angel. *Love that name!*
You can see the resemblance to Mossy straight away from Michael’s sketches (the super low slung skinnies and no more effort than a ruffle of her blond locks). “I guess I could just say that she is so rock & roll, but I think she is much more than that. With each drawing I always have her in mind. Her look is amazing and when I’m developing a denim style it’s good to have her in mind, then you can be sure that you have designed a beautiful pair of jeans,” he confessed to Grazia Daily, “Kate is simply a love affair for a designer.” Well, with that kind of flattery, we’d be wearing jeans inspired by ourselves too! Regardless of the mutual adoration, it’s no wonder the supermodel enjoys a bit of C.R.A.F.T magic in her wardrobe, Michael previously cut his teeth as a designer at Helmut Lang and follows a similar aesthetic - edgy, understated and effortlessly cool… sounds like Kate’s style again, doesn’t it?
