When asked if he would ever do another collaboration with the model, Green told U.S. mag Haute Living (via Daily Mail), “Who knows? This isn’t a conversation we’ve had recently, but it could happen.”
To this day, Moss’s first collection for Topshop remains my all-time favorite celebrity collaboration. As you can imagine, I was pretty devastated when the partnership came to an end in 2010. Evidently, I wasn’t the only one.
“We would never try to replace Kate,” Green said. “That was a moment, but maybe we could do something again.”
Sir Philip, I hope you’re not playing games with my heart.
Green also spoke about the retailer’s relationship with Demi Lovato, “We’ve been working with Demi quietly for the last six months. We’ve been dressing her and helping to develop her. My guys have done a great job. We’re just helping out.”
Hmm… sounds like Lovato is being primed to be a face of the brand–which would actually make sense given Topshop’s younger demo.
As for how Topshop attracts such A-list clientele (you know, like Kate Middleton), Green accredits it to their policy of discretion. “We shop a lot of celebrity people, but in a polite way,” he said. “We don’t call newspapers. They come and want to shop with us. We respect that… They trust us. It’s important that we respect people’s privacy.”
But one celebrity Topshop is definitely not courting is Kim Kardashian. “[The Kardashians] work with our [Arcadia's] U.K. brand, Dorothy Perkins,” Green said. “I felt that that brand was a fit, as it was akin to what they were doing here in the U.S. with Sears. [Dorothy Perkins] is more in line with that brand.”
