Kate Moss may no longer be TopShop's headline designer, but that doesn't seem to stop the store's creative team from referencing her whenever possible. Yesterday's collection from the ultimate chain store featured PVC leggings on almost 20 looks, plus shaggy faux fur vests that (unconvincingly) harked Kate's infamous Fendi coat of last year (you remember; the one that seemed to substitute itself for both a shirt AND pants). Rounding out the collection were a ton of chunky knits that could be stolen from Jamie Burke or Pete Doherty, plus some creamy, gauzy dresses that achieved a Rodarte kind of float with their rayon swishes (Remember when Kate was a hologram in the McQueen fashion show? They looked like that, with a more believable hemline). We're totally psyched for the PVC pants, totally not into the unfur jackets and vests, and also rather taken with the proportion of the jackets - they're kind of huge, which makes everyone's neck look longer and frame look bonier - a sort of Moss optical illusion, really. And here's the exciting thing: This time, what we want to buy actually matters, since starting this October, TopShop will have retail outlets in America! Aaaah! --LONDON PHOTOS, AS ALWAYS, BY THE DASHING MORGAN O'DONOVAN
