Turns out that Kate Moss for Topshop, the collaboration was reported dead in the water earlier this summer, isn't actually deceased. It's just taken on a different name. Hilary Alexander at the Telegraph reports:
"Topshop can confirm that the inimitable fashion partnership between Kate Moss and Topshop will enter a new phase in 2011," the statement said. "In the new format, Kate and the Topshop design team will focus on creating Limited Edition drop-in collections, replacing the current Seasonal Collections."According to sources, Moss will now be working with Topshop on limited-edition "drop-in" collections—the first of which will debut this fall and is called Iconic Kate. It'll comprise her ten favorite pieces from the last 14 Kate Moss for Topshop collections—including the much coveted pansy-print dress, the one-shoulder black skater dress, and the iconic panther-print mini-dress.
