Kate Moss for TopShop: Not at the Top of this Summer's Shopping List.
When Kate Moss's line opened for U.K. brand TopShop last year, patrons lined the streets outside as Moss modeled her collection for behind the flagship store's windows. Her flowy dresses and chic tops were almost instantly sold out all of which corresponded perfectly to her own personal style. For her second line, that doesn't seem to be the case. Nobody is waiting outside and not many are even buying. This is understandable given what she has produced. Kate Moss has recently been robbed of her "best dressed crown," when British Tatler magazine awarded it to Agyness Deyn, Kate coming in second after having received it for the two prior years. The silk top to the left retails for about $70.00 and the black one retails for $30. It is all pretty mediocre, and pricey compared to what you can buy at similar chain stores. (Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, H&M.) The rest of the collection can be viewed here.
