Kate Moss’s New Topshop Collection Is Better Than Her Last

Kate Moss’s new collection for Topshop went on sale in London this morning and, according to the Telegraph, caused a “shopping frenzy.” Within the first hour and a half, 250 red pansy dresses were sold. Other hot sellers included a striped fifties-style “prom” frock and a Rajasthan-style printed cotton halter-neck dress.

Though we were not thrilled with Kate’s last Topshop collection, the ration of potential hits to misses this go-round is far better (though we’re still not sure it’s worth the exchange rate). For example, this flapper dress could look great. However, the denim hot pants make it look as though the line might have been gotten that special Heidi Montag touch. At any rate, we hope Kate continues the general improvements with her autumn/winter collection — that’s what we’ll be able to purchase in New York when our very own Topshop opens in Soho.

The gray dress has lots of potential. The black lace isn’t our thing, but it’s certainly “now” after Prada’s fall 2008 show. We might think about trying on that side-slit turquoise top.Photo: Courtesy of Topshop

The jacket on the left belongs on a stage in Vegas, and the two other tops are just a bit too meh to hold our attention.Photo: Courtesy of Topshop
