Kate Moss for Topshop
Right after discovering that Berlin just opened up their very own Topshop department in KaDeWe (the ‘Harrods’ of Berlin), the great news keeps coming: supermodel Kate Moss is designing a collection for Topshop again, which will be available in stores coming April! Now there’s some news to get us through the upcoming cold dark days and gives us something to look forward to!
This is not the first time the world-famous British top model has designed for the high street store; between 2007 and 2010 14 ‘Kate Moss for Topshop’ collections were created, in which she played the role of designer and model. This upcoming collection will have 40 pieces ranging from womenswear, accessories, and footwear, and is expected (like with previous collections) to be inspired by Moss’s personal wardrobe and style.
“I have always been a big fan of Topshop and regularly shop there. I love what they stand for and am very excited at the thought of working with them. It’s going to be great fun.”
The collection will be sold in Topshop stores in 40 countries and the online shop of the brand. Check the pictures below for my favorites from the past collections.

Gay is hot. Ever since Russia’s president Putin signed new controversial laws against being LGTB (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) in Russia, it seems the rest of the world, as a counter effect, is becoming more pro-gay by the minute.
What’s happening in Russia is an ugly thing, but the rest of world is shining with beauty in our fierce vocalization of disapproval.
Tilda Swinton risking imprisonment in Moscow
Celebrities from all over the world have showed their anger and raised their voice against the Russian law in different inspiring ways; Tilda Swinton risked her freedom by taking a picture with a gay flag in Moskow, Stephen Fry inspired us to think about boycotting the Olympics in his moving and viral open letter to David Cameron and the IOC, hearts were breaking when Wentworth Miller (star of the drama series Prison Break) came out in protest against the law, declining an invitation for a film festival hosted in St. Petersburg – now models and musical stars have taken on a fashionable stand to support Stonewall, a lesbian, gay and bisexual charity in the UK.
Celebrities such as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Kylie Minogue, and Elton John use Adidas’ celebrated tennis trainer, the Stan Smith, as a blank canvas, creating one-off pieces of art that will be auctioned and then briefly exhibited, to raise money and awareness for the UK’s Lesbian, Gay & Bi-sexual equality charity Stonewall in collaboration with Platform Six.
