Being (almost) unhealthily obsessed with Kate Moss, Grazia Daily was naturally going to be at the front of the queue at Topshop's flagship store yesterday night, where Mossy launched her final collection for Sir Philip Green, along with the big man himself and his daughter Chloe.
Mossy brought some glamour to the Topshop escalator, making a spectacular entrance in a custom made (by Topshop) black lurex jumpsuit with art deco detailing to the neckline.
The jumpsuit is now set to be given away to the most persistent fan one lucky person. To be in with a chance, cliquez ici.
As well as rifling through the collection ourselves (feather cape = love) we grabbed some eager shoppers who were ALMOST as keen as we were to grab a piece of Moss before it was too late.
Our first spot was one of the very first to emerge with armfuls of goodies and was – brilliantly – called Naomi Campbell. No, not THAT one! See what Naomi has to say about her purchases below.
Secondly we found Sandra Hagelstam, a fashion student and blogger (5inchandup.blogspot.com) who had nabbed a few choice items from the new range. And finally, 19 year old Henrietta Rix, a fashion student at LCF had selected a piece of Miss Mosses back catalogue.
Amidst the shopping madness, Sir Philip and Chloe nipped out to grab some pick ‘n’ mix, surrounded by a group of burly minders (presumably to keep the likes of us from getting too close and asking Chloe what was in her wardrobe). Naturally, we followed.
Top sellers on the night were reissues of the red pansy print sundress and the tiger claw mini from Kate’s Iconic collection, as well as the black embroidered kimono dress and the crochet lace hippy dress fro this season’s collection.
There was also a mini-Moss retrospective featuring images from Kate’s fourteen campaigns for Topshop and also some complimentary drinkies at a special cocktail bar. So what do you think of Kate’s final Topshop range? Will you be grabbing a piece of the pie? And if so, what?! Answers below please.
