Our high street queen is back in the Topshop saddle after a three year break! Kate Moss is in London right now working alongside Topshop’s creative director Kate Phelan to launch her collection this coming April. It’ll feature around 40 pieces inspired by the super model’s personal wardrobe; as was the case with her previous Topshop collections.

“I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop,” Moss said in a statement. “Now more than ever, with London being at the forefront of fashion…it feels like I’m back home working with Topshop.”

All of these high street collaborations are getting me super excited.

Sneak Peek Leak! Isabel Marant for H&M.

Well, you heard right. The Isabel Marant for H&M look book has leaked and the collection is pure “Isabel”. The collection is very boho chic with lots of skinny denim, a pair of gorgeous tasseled boots, a beautiful embellished jacket and lots and lots of prints! In keeping with fall’s over-sized coat trend, the collection’s charcoal number will undoubtedly be a best seller! I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair of the leather tasseled boots in a size 36! If you see them, bag them for me. Too bad we still have to wait until the 14th of November… Get ready for a few cat fights! Meow.

Isabel-Marant-HM-Collaboration-2013
Yup! It’s official. H&M’s latest collaboration with Isabel Marant is sure to be its greatest one yet. Marant will be designing  clothing and accessories for both men and women with the collections set to launch in stores November 14th. The industry is buzzing today and you won’t hear the end of it. I reckon the queue will be the longest yet, and I’m wondering if the collection will feature any sneakers.

Rihanna to collaborate with River Island

Back in July, it was confirmed that Riri was collaborating with high street mogul River Island, and now she’s been stepping out in different pieces from the collection, looking very fly if you ask me. As expected, the collection will include a selection of cropped tops, baseball caps and high top sneakers.

“I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time,” Rihanna has explained. “River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family-run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.”

Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait for the line which is set to be released next Spring.
