It was only a matter of hours ago that Topshop tantalised us with a teaser of their new festival collection and AT LAST we can reveal the full details, so listen up. The collection is a celebration of the British attitude around festival style and we can’t think of a better brand to capture that energy and irreverent spirit.
You can check out the campaign images in the gallery above and, yes, as you may have guessed, Kate Bosworth is the star of the show. The actress and all-round style icon worked with Toppers for their Christmas campaign – singing her little heart out, no less – and you’ll remember when Grazia Daily met her at London Fashion Week in February, Bozzy revealed she’s been working on a secret project at Topshop HQ. And now we can see the fruits of her labour!
Kate Bosworth gave us a sneak preview of Topshop’s festival collection at Coachella
The Topshop in house design team worked with Kate to create the perfect festie wardrobe including 16 signature pieces based on her personal style. As you know, K-Bos road tested some of these looks at Coachella festival when she won our sartorial hearts, including a laser-cut top and matching scalloped-edged shorts as well as a black dress with a sheer overlay under a boho-tastic gilet teamed with black buckled boots.
‘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,’ says Kate Phelan, Topshop Creative Director. ‘It is an organic extension of Kate’s fashion sense aligned with the Topshop brand. We think that’s fresh and exciting.’ As do we!
And Ms Bosworth? ‘I’ve always had a love of fashion,’ Kate reveals. ‘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.’
You can now watch the full film starring Kate and directed by her fiancee Michael Polish (naturally). It’s fittingly called ‘The Road to Coachella’ and California’s Mono Lake makes the perfect backdrop. So pull on your floral headbands and click play below…
