Kate Moss Says Goodbye to Topshop

It has been confirmed that the upcoming Kate Moss for Topshop collection for Autumn/Winter, will be the model's last time teaming up with the high-street store. The final collection will launch some time in October, and will mark the end of the longtime collaboration with the brand.

Since 2007, Kate has designed a total of 14 collections for Topshop, the 14th being her last one that is yet to launch. It is believed that the model earned around £3 million from their collaboration in total. Both Topshop and Kate Moss deny that it was not an amicable split.

Sir Philip Green, owner of Topshop, made the following statement: "It has been fantastic for us and fantastic for her but the designs take more and more time and she cannot do this full-time anymore." 

The collaboration lastest much longer than most had even hoped, fashion lecturer David Shaw comments: "Everyone was quite surprised it lasted so long. Topshop is notorious for quick change. It brings in brands and loses brands." 

It might be unfortunate to no longer have the Kate Moss line, but here is hoping that Topshop are looking to revitalize their image with a new collaborator: perhaps a younger, new model would make for another successful collaboration, or even a British designer who is able to commit to more than just a few random pieces that we've been seeing lately with their collaborations. Georgia May Jagger is becoming increasingly named an icon: I could certainly see her stepping into the role, even if she is quite young - but lets hope it's someone surprising!
