After what feels like the longest four years in the history of fashion, Kate Moss has finally re-connected with high street favourite Topshop to design and launch her Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

As the famous store has branded it – ‘the icon is back’.

To celebrate the most eagerly anticipated clothing line of the year, the queen of all supermodels attended a launch party in her honour at the Oxford Street flagship store last night.

Hosted by Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, the event was engulfed by queues upon queues of fashionistas desperate to get their hands on the beautiful new pieces – some who had queued for five hours to catch a glimpse of Kate.

As London seems to be the fashion capital of the world at the moment, it was only fitting that Kate Moss should unveil her new collection in the bustling heart of the city, much to the amusement of on looking tourists who gathered behind the swarms of paparazzi and die-hard fans.

The collection hit www.topshop.com at 9am this morning with some of its staple pieces selling out within minutes, which is no surprise considering women up and down the country would love to be styled like the iconic model.

Although muted colours dominate the line, it’s safe to say that the pieces sway much closer to party wear than work wear, with glitzy dresses and metallic fabrics playing a huge role.

Famous for her edgy nature, it was to be expected that Moss would include some grungier items such as the fringed leather jacket which is selling at £190. Fringing seems to be a consistent theme, creating a hedonistic and summery bohemian vibe.

As a much loved member of London’s ultra-cool Notting Hill gang, Kate was naturally joined by a few famous faces at the launch party.

Her young blonde successors Cara Delevigne and Suki Waterhouse posed for photographs in a playful fashion whilst sporting some of the pieces from the line, while supermodel best pal Naomi Campbell wore the beaded fringe tiered dress (£250) and looked like she’d stepped directly off the set of The Great Gatsby. Coincidentally, this dress is now sold out.

Hopefully this signifies many more years of Kate Moss for Topshop, who described the experience as ‘like being back at home’.
