After Kate Moss comes the rest of them, we suppose — one grown-up model after another announced a one-off fashion collaboration this week.
First is Sophie Dahl (granddaughter of Roald), who launched a capsule line for the British brand Brora, to celebrate the label’s 20th anniversary. The line is called “The Lost Weekend,” with 13 pieces taking inspiration from English summers and the seaside.
Meanwhile, Helena Christensen just announced a partnership with bagmaker Kipling, which hasn’t yet launched, but will offer 11 options inspired by the supermodel’s own photography side career. The one clutch to debut so far features a blown-out print of a rose that Christensen photographed herself (seen at left).
Let’s see, before these two this week (and of course, Kate’s epic run at Topshop), cropped blond model Agyness Deyn launched a line of Doc Martens, and Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley offered up lingerie for Marks & Spencer. If we can glean one unspoken rule for model-fashion partnerships, it’s that the products in question must suit the model’s public perception.
