It looks like the runway isn’t the only place seeing a nineties revival. Word on the street is that the decade’s most beautiful couple, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, are reuniting—on screen, that is. The pair, who dated from 1994 to 1997, are rumored to be starring in Sir Paul McCartney’s new music video, “Queenie Eye,” which, sources say, will also feature Meryl Streep and Gary Barlow. No word yet on what the cast will be wearing, but we have our money on Stella.
It’s back. Topshop announced today that it’s reigniting its hyper-successful collaboration with Kate Moss. Moss worked on fourteen collections for the high street retailer between 2007 and 2010, all of which were inspired by her own saucy, bohemian style. So why did the model decide Spring ’14 was the right time to revive the range? “I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at TOPSHOP,” she said in a press release. “Now more than ever with London being at the forefront of fashion…it feels like I’m back home working with TOPSHOP.” Moss is currently designing the lineup with Topshop’s creative director Kate Phelan. The new offering will hit stores worldwide in April 2014.
June’s widespread rumors are true—Kate Moss will cover the 60th anniversary issue of Playboy, and word on the street is that Mert & Marcus have already shot the feature. “It’s natural for us,” Hugh Hefner told the Los Angeles Times. “She’s a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modeling.” Indeed, after seeing Moss’ sultry Spring Versace ads, that pinup-worthy spread in last November’s Vanity Fair (left,) and that saucy Spring Love cover of her swooning in a bathtub, we don’t think Playboy is too big of a stretch.
Yesterday, Giles Deacon sent an eye-catching, screen print-saturated Spring ’14 collection down the runway—though it wasn’t the catwalkers turning heads so much as the models spotted on the garments. According to Vogue.co.uk, Deacon’s first three looks featured never-before-used photos of Amber Valletta from Glen Luchford’s 1997 Prada test shoot—that’s two this week for the muse. Luchford snaps of Kate Moss also made an appearance on Giles’ Spring looks, and some have suggested that the collection’s glittering, gap-toothed mouth motif was a nod to stylist Katie Grand’s grin. Considering Grand and Deacon have been pals and colleagues for decades, we don’t think it’s too wild a guess.
What does Jessica Stam have in common with Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada, Riccardo Tisci, and Dries Van Noten? The model can now claim an LPD New York T-shirt boldly emblazoned with her last name and birth year (’86) in black. Last night, Stam and LPD founder Benjamin Fainlight hosted friends including Jennifer Fisher and Athena Calderone at The Jane hotel to celebrate the launch of the new “Team Stam” collaboration jersey that will benefit the catwalker’s charity of choice, Many Hopes, which invests in sustainable community development in Kenya. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each shirt will go to the foundation. “My friend connected me with Stam and thought there was potential to use LPD and her shared platform to give back to a really great cause,” Fainlight told Style.com.
Over the past year, LPD New York’s novelty tees have developed a cult following with the street-style set, and Fainlight recently expanded beyond designers’ names with the Artist Series, which includes Hirst, Pollock, and Warhol styles. Beginning with Team Stam, we think Fainlight is onto something with models—who wouldn’t want to advertise their allegiance to Team Campbell, Team Moss, or Team Smalls? The designer hinted, “Well, I can’t give away too much, but I might just have that same concept coming out with a prevalent online retailer [chances are it's Net-a-Porter] that has been amazing about supporting the brand and giving us a global stage.” Building off of this idea, Stam suggested, “It would be neat if other philanthropic models like Liya Kebede, Christy Turlington Burns for Every Mother Counts, and Karlie Kloss for FEED got involved in another round of shirts.”
A potential model series isn’t the only project in the pipeline for LPD. On Friday evening, the label will stage its first NYFW concept presentation in conjunction with Conflict of Interest (known for its witty fashion T-shirts splashed with puns like “Ballinciaga” or “Ill Slander”). At the Spring ’14 show, Fainlight will debut a full cut-and-sewn collection including tailored outerwear, knitwear, and trousers that reportedly focuses on unorthodox finishings and treatments. “I really wanted to play with the conventions of streetwear and incorporate high-fashion concepts,” Fainlight said. “I think this new direction will show people that we’re a lot more than a T-shirt brand.”
