KATE Moss' new fashion collection was being sold online by savvy shoppers within hours of its Dublin launch, after the most covetable items quickly sold out.

With good quality fabric and retro-bohemian nostalgia, the Topshop collection yesterday turned a profit – and not just for the stores and websites stocking it.

Enterprising shoppers pounced early and then took to eBay, where the most iconic pieces were on sale for more than three times their original price.

It was testament to the former supermodel (below), who turned 40 this year but shows no loss of her enduring style power.

There are standout pieces such as the Gatsby-esque, beaded tulle flapper dress, which feels very luxe and looks more expensive than its €325 price tag.

The silver sensation was an instant target for fashionistas attending a breakfast launch at BT2 on Grafton Street, which sells Topshop clothes.

Lust lists included a fringed leather jacket (€245), embellished stretch-denim shorts (€65), one-shouldered mini dress in lemon chiffon (€110), and an embellished Paisley print chiffon top (€98).
