Kate Moss Flops for Topshop

Page 2 of 2

Don’t expect to stock up on your new Kate-but-not-Kate look, however: Stateside the pieces are only available at Barney’s New York or online, and quantities are limited. Here’s the firm warning from the Topshop site:

Due to considerable demand for this collection, and to be fair to all our customers, you will only be able to buy 1 of each style and can buy no more than five items at a time. So choose wisely.

Damn, you’d think this some earth quaking decision, not whether to buy the $24 tank (basic and nothing special) or the $120 “short dress with neck detail” (basic and nothing special -- and that neckline was done ten-fold better by Mona Lucero for the Tamarac Square Fashion Project). Per Racked, only about forty people were lined up outside the Barney’s co-op and 100 people outside the main Barney’s further uptown. “At 11am, they raised the gate and all 40 plus of us filed inside, unaware of the disappointment that would soon follow.” By noon, the excitement was over. So much for the “considerable demand.”

Wouldn’t matter to those of us here in fly-over country, anyway. We can’t actually score any of the (very few) cute looks: No, those aren’t available online from Topshop, and Barney’s is only featuring one tank top on its site.

Guess we can’t all be Kate after all.
