Not every celeb can turn their hand to designing; however, some have shown a decided flair for creating clothes which fly off the shelves.
Here’s a list of the ones we covet:
Kate Moss for Topshop
Kate Moss’s relationship with Topshop was one of the longest-running celeb fashion collaborations with the model designing her first 50 pieces for the high street store in 2007 and producing another 13 collections over the next three years. The collections drew on Moss’s own bohemian style and pieces often had a vintage feel to them. Stand out items included a pansy-print tea dress and an art deco-style beaded flapper dress.
It was recently announced that after a three-year break, Moss will put her name to another Topshop collection to be launched next year.
Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony
Chloe Sevigny is arguably one of the chicest stars around so any fashion collaboration she put her name to was always going to be dripping with cool.
Her current autumn/winter collection for Opening Ceremony is her fifth and features 1960s’ classic shapes and styles mixed with the streetwear for which the brand is best known. Think babydoll dresses, swing coats and pencil skirts with some statement sweaters and hoodies thrown in.
Amy Winehouse and Fred Perry
Amy Winehouse teamed up with Fred Perry on several collections between 2010 and her untimely death in 2011 and the brand continues to release collections inspired by Amy’s unique style in aid of the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
The clothes have a distinctly retro feel to them, with classic polo shirts, 50’s style halternecks, wide belts and tweed pencil skirts all featuring prominently.
The latest collection features gingham and patterned shirt dresses, high-waisted shorts and trousers and a statement bowling bag.
Professor Green and Puma
Professor Green’s wife Millie Mackintosh isn’t the only one with links to the fashion world. The rapper has collaborated with Puma on a range of trainers and sportswear since last year.
So far, the collections have focused on camouflage prints, clashing colours and cutting edge print techniques. Highlights include this season’s on-trend satin bomber jacket.
Jay-Z for Barneys
Rapper, producer and entrepreneur Jay-Z added another string to his bow when he collaborated with Barneys on its New York Holiday Christmas collection. He has chosen a slick colour palette of white, black, silver and gold to represent the New York skyline at night. Although Jay-Z hasn’t turned fashion designer exactly, he has has picked his favourite items from the store including a Balenciaga backpack, a Balmain t-shirt and an Elder Statesman cashmere ski mask to be entered into the collection. These key pieces are then to be displayed in an immersive gallery space in the Madison Avenue flagship store.
