This weekend Kate Moss revealed her Christmas line to the Sunday Times Style magazine. On British Style Genius we saw how Kate took her favourite vintage items to the Topshop design team to essentially copy and reproduce for the masses, but in this interview she talked about the direct inspiration for her next collection.
One of the key pieces is a limited edition full length blue sequined dress which was inspired by her 30th birthday vintage dress (above middle). Kate explains, "I later found out that the dress I wore that night was owned by Britt Ekland, and she wore it to the premiere of The Man with the Golden Gun. It is intricately covered in midnight-blue sequins, so we have only produced 10 of the full-length version." The full length version will retail for, a slightly shocking, £400 but a shorter version will be widely available for £130.

During London Fashion Week Kate partied in an eye-catching mini dress with panther detail. I was very intrigued by the dress so am excited to report that it is part of her Topshop line! The mini dress was also inspired by a vintage find, "I found a similar dress to the panther one in a New York flea market when I was 17, and I've kept it ever since. I chopped off the bottom and used it as inspiration for this version."
In the interview Kate also revealed that a black jersey dress she recently wore to the Ivy club (above left) is part of her new collection. "It's the sort of dress you could wear to a dinner party or a club – I wore it to the new Ivy club recently."
Finally Kate gave tips on getting dressed explaining,
"I don't think of things as "outfits" – I throw together what I feel is right for the night. I follow my feelings and just get dressed. For me, it’s not necessarily about trends or even interpreting catwalk looks. I go with a feeling or emotion and don’t necessarily plan, unless, perhaps, it’s a special occasion, or I’ve just bought something that I love and am desperate to wear (such as my new Balenciaga biker jacket)."
The collection hits stores and online on 28th October.
