GOODBYE, BUT NOT FAREWELL: Kate Moss unveiled her last official collection for Topshop at the brand’s Oxford Circus flagship in London on Monday night. A crowd of about 200 shoppers who had been invited to the event filled the Kate Moss space, taking pictures of the model, grabbing fistfuls of clothing and listening to DJ Wildcat Will’s tunes.

The collection — comprised of 109 styles — will be sold in Topshop stores worldwide as of today. Topshop owner Sir Philip Green said he and Moss would continue working together. “I’m not going anywhere and neither is she,” he said. “This collection still works, and our relationship hasn’t ended. But we now need to go away for a while, and think about how to do things differently. This collection takes a lot of hard work — she wants to do other things and so do I — but our relationship is as strong as ever.”

Green, accompanied by his daughter Chloe, who has just begun to work at Topshop’s parent Arcadia Group, said the collection was set to remain on the shop floor for three to four weeks — if it doesn’t sell out sooner. The new collection features some of Moss’ bestsellers and some limited edition items such as the floor-length emerald green gown. The bulk of the collection is new, however, and includes sequinned jackets, embroidered or fur-trimmed dresses, dramatic black feather stoles, fitted cardigans and lots of flower-print dresses.
