Topshop have teamed up with style icon Kate Bosworth to create a whole festival collection that captures the mood and irreverent style of British festival goers. Bosworth worked with the Topshop in house design team to design pieces which reflected her personal style. Bosworth debuted select pieces from the range at this year’s Coachella festival.
Talking about the collaboration with Kate, Topshop Creative Director Kate Phelan said, “Kate and I were discussing the summer trends and how she had been one of our inspirations, she was here working with us on our Christmas project – the next day Kate came in with all these incredible images and references and shared what her ultimate festival outfits looked like. It is an organic extension of Kate’s fashion sense aligned with the Topshop brand – we think that’s fresh and exciting.”
Bosworth said of the project “I’ve always had a love of fashion. To gain learning experience from the Topshop design team has been a great opportunity for me. Our intent was to create fresh, wearable, and effortless festival pieces. I am proud of our work together and I adore these pieces, they fit perfectly with the mood of the ‘Topshop Festival’ collection.”
To celebrate the collection, Bosworth teamed up with director fiancee Michael Polish to create a whimsical short film, capturing Bosworth in the collection. The film shows Bosworth floating around in the grunge inspired shirts, scalloped edge shorts and flowing mini dresses.
