Now that Kate Moss is only releasing two collections a year for Tophsop, her lineups offer a broader range of styles and cover even more of the season's important trends. For spring/summer 2010, Moss reintroduced a few favorites from the past, including the popular printed kimonos and 1970s smocked blouses, and added variations on key summer themes like the micro short. The latter appears throughout the collection in multiple styles—gray suede hotpants with laser-cut details, black velvet shorts with white lace trim, and thoroughly modern silk tap shorts in mint green and white. Check out the entire lineup, which is available in stores and online tomorrow, in the gallery below.
>> Yesterday came news that Lady Gaga, who has worked together with Philip Treacy on several of her headpieces, has applied for an internship with the milliner — although a spokesperson for Treacy said nothing definite had been confirmed yet. And today, a first look at another fashion collaboration: the first still from Gaga's upcoming "Alejandro" video, directed by Steven Klein, has appeared.
Gaga recently spoke to Extra about working with Klein, but she wasn't too forthcoming, calling it “a beautiful video” but adding that, “like all my videos, I really don’t know what it will look like until it’s finished.”
She continued: “[Steven] is a great friend of mine, and I love him so much and have so much respect for him. We’ve been so excited to collaborate . . . and tell a story of my music through his lens.”
Preen's Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi have developed a collection of workwear with London tailor Gieves & Hawkes. "We wanted it to be masculine with a feminine twist, we thought it was about time we gave our Preen girl something to wear to work," said the designers.
And speaking of Mario Grauso, the Vera Wang president has taken on the role of columnist for Elle, as the magazine's "correspondent of chic."
