Kate Moss' vintage-inspired summer collection hits shelves

1 APRIL 2009
Queues were expected on the High Street today as model-turned-designer Kate Moss launched her latest fashion collection. The new line, which consists largely of summer dresses, takes inspiration from vintage items, the hippy chic trend and designs the covergirl's mum Linda wore back in the Seventies.

And for the first time ever US fans can grab a piece of Kate's style, as retailer Topshop for which she creates the ranges is opening its first store in New York on April 2.

The range encompasses everything from flapper girl-style sequinned dresses to snakeskin-printed hot pants and short-sleeeved, tassled jackets.

Standout pieces include a dramatic black suede biker jacket, adorned with painted and embellished feathers around the neckline, at 120, and a 60 striped dress inspired by one Kate picked up in an LA thrift shop.

A key feature of the new line is a series of bold prints which the Croydon-born beauty reworked from the archive of department store Liberty. Among the new patterns which are used on tunic tops and maxi dresses is bluebell design Lilabell, named after her six year-old daughter Lila.
