Tracking The Kate Moss Effect At The Resort Collections
The notion that Kate Moss sparks trends is hardly new—see pirate boots, cutoffs, vintage dresses on the red carpet, etc. And it seems the supermodel’s innate style is more compelling than ever for designers as well as consumers. Case in point: the Gloria Swanson-channeling look she dreamed up with Marc Jacobs to wear to the Costume Institute Gala in May. A line-for-line copy made an appearance in Jacobs’ Resort collection, and we’ve glimpsed its shadow several times throughout the Cruise season—in the use of lamé at Roksanda Ilincic and Chris Benz and in the shimmering one-shoulder silhouettes at Michael Kors and Alexander Wang. And then there’s her turban, a version of which turned up at Yigal Azrouël topping a draped wrap dress—minus the Harry Winston sapphire, of course. Whether it’s all a case of direct homage or just something in the air, Kate as usual was the first to distill the mood.
