It seems like a new capsule collection launches almost every day, and to that I say BRING IT ON. Especially if in the form of Kate Bosworth and Topshop's "The Collection," which is a far cry from the bohemian-inspired line she worked with them on before.
Yes, that is correct: Bosworth isn't just an observer of the fashion world — the actress is a design consultant for the brand, and worked with the creative team to design the line. And true to the cleanness and starkness of winter, it consists of pieces like oversized collarless coats in shearling, shirting in leather and silk chiffon, biker pants, a grey t-shirt, metallic leather skirts, and accessories that work with them.
"The Collection is tailored and classic," explains Bosworth. "For Fall, we wanted to create luxurious pieces with a strong minimalist approach. Silm silhouettes are cloaked in a masculine shape, staying true to the mix of masculine/feminine balance that exists in my personal aesthetic."
"The Collection is everything you need to get easy cool effortless style," adds Topshop creative director, Kate Phelan. "Simple t-shirt pieces and shirts with amazing leather jeans are the key to the look, finish with the ultimate shearling coat and you're done. Colours are classic; red and black with a touch of white and a flash of silver, mix together to make it your own."
Consisting of 46 pieces, the collection is available today online at thebay.com. You can also note that the campaign film was shot by Michael Polish, Bosworth's husband. Go for it, everybody.
