Kate Bosworth collaborates with Topshop on festival project


Kate Bosworth is collaborating with Topshop on a festival-themed fashion collection.

At Coachella last weekend, the actress unveiled an outfit she worked with the retailer to create – a white laser-cut top and shorts ensemble – while she chatted to reporters about the partnership.

Kate is a regular at the music-lover's paradise in California, so it is fitting that she chose to test-drive the summery outfit there.



"The design team and I thought a lot about the festival season," she said. "Particularly with the collection, a lot of it was about the California girl. Obviously the perfect place to wear it was Coachella."

While Kate did not actually design the clothing line, she offered creative input to Topshop's summer festival project.

A spokersperson for the brand described the initiative as "a 360 degree campaign that involves music, clothes, film, journeys and the attitude and energy of British festivals."

Further details will be revealed about the venture later this year. Kate has been working with Tosphop for several years now. She has lent her star power to several store openings and was the first ever face of the brand's festive campaign.


Directed by her fiancé Michael Polish, the short film shows the super-stylish starlet singing Christmas tune Winter Wonderland as she stands on a grand piano in a jazz club.

"Kate has the most amazing voice - that's the part that takes everyone by surprise," said Topshop creative director Kate Phelan.

Naturally, Kate is wearing Topshop in the video – a custom-made burgundy shimmering dress that she created alongside the retailer's designer team. The stunning creation will be available as a special made-to-order purchase on topshop.com from February 2013 to celebrate the high street chain's LA store opening.

"We were all working on an idea to celebrate Christmas in a fun way and we just loved Kate's attitude and energy," said Kate.

"She is always pictured wearing Topshop and we love how she makes it her own. I feel like she embodies so many of the qualities of our girl - she appeals to everyone because she loves fashion and that's something we can all relate to regardless of age. Topshop is built on being able to cater for everybody no matter who they are or where they come from."
