Kate Moss for Topshop – The Complete Lookbook!

Remember way back in October when it was announced that Kate Moss and Topshop were teaming up once again and the whole world cheered? The lookbook has now been unveiled in all its glory and the rejoicing can now continue in full force, because this latest capsule collection contains some very covetable pieces indeed.

The lineup was created around four themes – balearic dressing, pyjama dressing, cocktail hour and tailoring noir – and we’re wanting it all. Cute bow-tie romper, gold sequin jacket, a metallic evening gown even. They’re all inspired by pieces in the effortlessly cool model’s own closet, after all, so it’s no surprise that the collection is looking this good.

Mark your calendars – Kate Moss for Topshop launches on April 30. Priced from about $70 to $1,200, the capsule will be available online and in stores at Topshop, Nordstrom, and Net-a-porter.com, as well as at 25 Hudson’s Bay locations across Canada and on thebay.com.

Sarah Stevenson for Target Capsule Collection Unveiled

Ever since she was crowned the winner of the Toronto Fashion Incubator New Labels 2013 competition, we’ve been waiting patiently for the big reveal of Sarah Stevenson‘s exclusive capsule collection for New Labels sponsor Target. Well, the wait is finally over and we’re delighted to find that the Toronto-based designer has created an offering that perfectly marries her romantic aesthetic with Target’s pocketbook-friendly prices.

“When I found out that I was going to be doing a line for Target, it was important for me that the Target collection be really reflective of who I am as a brand,” said Sarah. Happily for us, that means florals, florals and more florals. “I look for inspiration everywhere, but I always end up doing florals…I’ll re-interpret florals in many different ways.” And we can’t get enough of it.

Sarah Stevenson for Target launches in select Canadian stores on March 23. Check out the lookbook below – what’s on your wish list so far?
