Kate Moss's much talked about partnership with Topshop is far from over, as she launches new label 'Iconic Kate'.

Contrary to wild speculation and rumour in recent days, Topshop has just released a statement stating that its partnership with Kate Moss is far from over.

Instead of putting her name to seasonal collections, timed to spring-summer and autumn-winter, Mossy will now be working with Topshop's design team to produce Limited Edition 'drop-in' collections.



The move makes sound business and fashion sense; much more attuned to Kate's spontaneous style. Rather than being tied to particular schedules, it appears she will now be more of a free agent, and like a 'fashion magpie', able to unearth looks as and when they take her fancy and have them translated into best-sellers.



To mark her new chapter with the British high street giant, Kate has personally chosen her Top Ten all-time favourites from her past 14 collections. These will be sold under a new label, 'Iconic Kate', and will include the pansy-print day dress from her first-ever collection, launched in May 2007, the black one-shoulder skating dress, and the panther mini-dress.



"Topshop can confirm that the inimitable fashion partnership between Kate Moss and Topshop will enter a new phase in 2011," the statement said. "In the new format, Kate and the Topshop design team will focus on creating Limited Edition drop-in collections, replacing the current Seasonal Collections".



Kate's last full "seasonal collection", will go on sale worldwide, on October 28th, and will feature the model's signature boho-chic, with pretty day-dresses, uber-glam evening gowns, vintage-inspired knits and a new range of semi-precious jewellery.
