Get Your Camera Ready

Kate Moss will make a rare public appearance on May 8 when Barneys New York fêtes the supermodel and her new capsule collection for Topshop, which the retailer will launch and carry exclusively in the U.S. Barneys has, in the past, stocked select Topshop pieces, including the Baxter jean, which sold out. Moss’ designs will be prominently displayed in the Co-Op, and Simon Doonan will install windows to herald the collection’s arrival. “Kate’s style is so much of a Barneys style, so it’s like having a peek into her closet,” says a Barney's exec. So excited is she with the upcoming shipment that she’s already earmarked her personal must-haves: a grey T-shirt with metal studs and a little chiffon dress. From what I've seem her designs will compliment Ms. Moss' newest fancied item, the Legende a la Longchamp. "Kate Moss really had a crush on this bag," says managing director Jean Cassegrain of the brand's face for the past three seasons. "She has such a stylish eye, and we are so happy with our relationship." All that matters is that it looks better than this, which it does. This It-tote has both chicness and utility, well, in the bag. Glossy black patent leather covers an oh-so-of-the-season doctor's shape, which has the heft to keep a day's worth of makeup, magazines, and costume changes safe and sound. My kind of bag, if it wasn't for the patent leather. When will it be over?
