Kate Moss X Topshop
She helped to launch the Topshop brand back in 2007 and now she has once again designed a stunning collection for the high street favourite.

News that Kate Moss was collaborating with the British retailer again set the fashion world alight with excitement and anticipation.

A supermodel idolised globally because of her laid back attitude and edgy fashion sense combined with the highstreet brand that took America by surprise with its trendy, sought after looks – what could be better?

The collection is said to be inspired by Kate’s vast vintage clothing collection with the new designs having a seventies vibe.

A contemporary take on seventies trends such as fringe, jumpsuits and suede jackets dazzle in the preview photographs creating a modern vintage look.

Print features heavily in the collection with some demure patterns while others are youthful and pop.
Metallics add a rich element to fringe in one dress of the collection but act as a solid statement in a different maxi dress piece.

Echoing her own personal style, and that of Topshop’s, these melodramatic, vintage inspired designs will give us all yet another reason to walk through the doors of Topshop.

The Clutch: Colour blocked and clean shaped
The place that you put your life in for a fancy day or a wild night; the clutch bag is a necessity with the latest versions being contemporary and vivid.

One high street shop that wouldn’t usually be associated with trendy accessories is Dorothy Perkins but recognition should be given for the clean cut, classy pieces they have retailing right now.

Gold bars lining the bags break the solid pastel colours. The dainty, symmetrical leather design will bring a dull, dark outfit straight into the spring/summer season.

Vibrant pastels range from a light sky blue to soft peach, complimented by metallic elements. Zips have largely replaced the classic buttoned over look when it comes to your mini suitcase for an occasion.

Prices start at €16.00 and rise as far as €29.00 for larger, more decorative bags.

Steal Her Style: Emma Watson
Following her recent press tour for new movie ‘Noah’, Emma Watson has reminded us why she has become one of Hollywood’s style elite.

From dark, dramatic silk gowns, a bit of androgyny and then a daring white number, this actress not only dominates the red carpet but varies her quirky style from day to day.

Her new movie in which she stars alongside Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connolly brought her to many different countries to promote the film, but her stunning style choices are what caught people’s attention.

Emma’s everyday look is also something to be desired for. She often opts for structured, classic pieces and adds a quirky element to make it her own. Her slim figure means she pulls off bodycon dresses in vibrant print or chooses A-line skirts and waist cinching trenches to create an hourglass shape.

Off duty, the actress keeps it simple with a leather jacket, skinny jeans and black boots being her go to look. Often seen in darker colours it is rare that Emma Watson wears a splash of colour when off the red carpet. Wooly scarves and buttoned, oversized coats are other pieces she sports when out and about.
