You can always count on Topshop to kick off the new year with a bang – last January they announced Cara Delevingne as their face and for 2016, they’ve snapped up one of the most famous catwalk faces right now, Karlie Kloss.
The 23-year-old model, businesswoman, vlogger and coder – yep, we’re insanely jealous of that CV too – poses up a storm in everything from classic trench coats to cool separates and sexy dresses for the SS16 campaign. It’s easy to see why she’s bagged a top 10 spot on Forbes’ Highest Paid Models list!
‘It is thrilling to have Karlie back’ said Topshop Creative Director Kate Phelan, ‘She is the ultimate Topshop girl and modern super – a world-renowned fashion figure, businesswoman, entrepreneur and philanthropist who will resonate with our global customers through her many talents, ambitions and passions.’
The hook-up comes eight years after Karlie first modeled for Toppers. ‘One of my first modelling jobs was my Topshop campaign eight years ago’, she revealed, ‘My grandmother brought me over from St Louis. I was young, shy and super nervous. Luckily I was shooting with Jourdan Dunn and we became overnight best friends. I think she had me in stitches the whole time we were shooting.’ So, while we’ll probably always have Karlie life envy, at least we don’t have to covet her closet anymore!
So, what can we expect from the SS16 collection? Chloe Jackson, LOOK’s Fashion Editor reveals, ‘As if the news about Karlie wasn’t exciting enough, then there’s the spring collection itself. As always with Topshop, it ticks every catwalk trend, from glossy bombers to ‘it’ colour khaki and relaxed tailoring, and Karlie makes each piece look seriously covetable. Just one thing, can I have my jacket monogrammed too please, Topshop?’
Make that two!
