>> Kate Moss has been doing collections for Topshop since 2007, and her 14th collection, out on Oct. 25, will be her last full collection for the brand, Sir Philip Green confirmed. The October release will include a few pieces from Moss's first Topshop collection which are still in demand.
Sources close to Moss described her existing Topshop contract as having “reached its natural conclusion." Green noted, "Kate has done 14 collections with us. It has been fantastic for us and fantastic for her, but they take more and more time and she cannot do this full-time any more." Earlier this year, Green had already decided to downsize the number of Kate Moss of Topshop collections from six to two.

An anonymous source noted to the Daily Mail: "Kate Moss's range has not been selling at the same rate that it was and was in danger of running out of steam. At one point she was doing six collections a year but they cut it back to two a year because they could not sustain it and that is when it started to falter."
Going forward, Green says that the retailer will release a series of smaller capsule Kate Moss for Topshop collections, comprising 12 to 15 pieces, two to three times per year: "That will be easier for us, we’ll do something fun."
