Equipment, celebrated for its modern, androgynous silhouettes, luxe fabrics, and unexpected details, introduces its capsule collection solely designed by the fashion icon Kate Moss herself.
Kate Moss Designs A Personal Collection In The Spirit Of Nineties Grunge, Sexy But Not Too Much
When we ask her when and where the Equipment love affair first started, Moss comments, « My boyfriend at the time has loads of their shirts, and I began borrowing them… », without giving his name…
Classic pieces re-seen through the rock and rolls eyes of Kate…her most coveted piece? The “easy wear” shirt – its very fluid, very soft fabric imparts a “perfect fall on the skin”.
"Leopard Is A Forever Print That Never Falls Out Of Fashion."
Kate literally puts her signature on her pieces as a monogram print. serie ||| NOIRE offers a selection of pieces: silk shirts with tie necklines that knot – or not, pyjama sets, and the slipdress (highly reminiscent of the stick-thin nineties…).
With pieces ranging from Equipment’s quintessential button downs and archived prints, to styles more synonymous with the supermodel’s signature look-think star-printed silk tie-neck shirts, and new silhouettes with just the right touch of moss (enter « The London »).
While bold, David Bowie-inspired lightning bolt prints become visible in Moss’s trademark color palette of red, black, white and grey, along with options in her token leopard motif and handwritten « KM » signature in monogrammed embroidery.
Moss assumed full creative direction for the collection’s fall 2016 campaign-shot in black and white at her secluded country estate in Cotswolds, England. Moss discreetly lures us inside her private world, giving a glimpse into her personal life in a very intimate way. Moss brought in two close friends, Susie Cave-the wife of cult musician and artist, Nick Cave, and Ella Richards-granddaughter of The Rolling Stones legend, Keith Richards to appear by her side and best portray the moody aesthetic behind her vision.
