Kate Moss first released her own designs for Topshop in May 2007, and the much anticipated Spring/Summer collection by Kate Moss for Topshop has been launched in stores.

This year's Kate Moss Summer Collection looks set to be her most exciting yet, channelling a bohemian traveller with global influences from Ibiza, Miami, India and beyond to create the perfect summer party look.

Dresses are the staple of Kate's summer wardrobe for Topshop. Exquisite feather-weight chiffon dresses and tops appear in a palette of dusty hues, Aztec prints or 1940s florals. Fluid jersey is printed with hand drawn nautical inspired stripes, native American feather print or embroidered with intricate patterns.

Gypsy inspired broderie anglaise adorns a midnight blue mini dress and antique white smock top, delicately embroidered with cornflower blue stitching. Mini tunic dresses and capelets are trimmed with tiny glass bugle beading while a silk patchwork print dress with a cut-about hem is inspired by silk scarves. 1950's prom-style cotton dresses are knife pleated, in sherbet yellow and green and white striped seersucker.

Kate’s spring outerwear includes bolero-shaped cropped jackets made in pin-striped cotton twill, butter-soft slate grey leather or softly printed silk. An oversized boyfriend navy blue blazer, on the other hand, is finished with an embroidered anchor motif badge.
Bottoms evoke a 70s influence as pinstriped denim jeans fall into a kick flare and shorts in lace-up cotton and washed denim go even shorter for Spring/Summer 08. Accessories are highlighted by the Ibiza Sandal - Kate's own fashion-forward take on gladiator sandals.

Dramatic eveningwear includes a stunning black crepe empire-line and floor length gown with tasselled neckline, a jet black beaded flapper dress and a floor-sweeping black printed chiffon dress with waterfall ruffles. A Victorian matador cape trimmed with black pom-poms and a twisted ribbon completes the collection.

The Kate Moss Topshop range can be found at 80 solus stores nationwide and TOPSHOP.COM, in addition to 40 of Topshop's international franchisee stores.
