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.

    Everything and anything Kate touches is gold. She’s an iconic trend setter who will never go out of style. Nobody compares! These dresses are fabuous!

    Ah my dear Kate did it again and she’s famous for it. I adore or admire her now for many years since the ads togheter with Karen Ferrari for Calvin Klein, in the 90s. Okay she had a little mishaps, but who didn’t had that in their life. Her Topshop etc collection wasn’t my favorite knowing what she has done to get a collection with her own name on it, okay it’s only Topshop, but she can do better. And now again she proofs that she is not only a fashionable but also stylish and trendy lady. I’m proud on her, despite her heavy lifestyle, she still is a person which influence a lot of young woman/girls. Only because she is unique in this industry. Arriverderci

    I love the revitalization of the silent screen era, a.k.a channeling Gloria Swanson. It was a carefree time and Lord knows we could use all stand more of that.

    Kate Moss is everywhere. It’s rare when you read the British Vogue and they don’t talk about her.
