If you, like us, and Derek Blasberg, have missed beloved catwalk queen Karlie Kloss this week, she’s finally made an appearance! We don’t think the below video, which was shot in early January, is directly linked to Kloss’ reason for skipping NYFW, but it sure is a nice treat at the end of an otherwise Kloss-less week.
ShowStudio’s Nick Knight directed the film to commemorate 10 years of Topshop’s support of the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN program. The program has helped launch the careers of designers like Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou and Richard Nicoll, many of whom have gone on to do limited edition collaborations with the British retailer. In honor of this decade-long collaboration, Kloss models various pieces from those collaborations.
In capturing the spirit of each talented designer showcased, the video also demonstrates how incredibly versatile Kloss is. She looks amazing throughout and we think the video gets better as it goes along. There’s even a dancing in the rain/Flashdance moment at the end. Enjoy! And stay tuned for our coverage of these designers’ fall collections, as London Fashion Week begins today!
