Kate Moss Mania Travels Stateside

  • Kate Moss' line for Topshop arrives in New York at Barney's stores. Says Barney's creative director Simon Doonan: "I have been at Barney's for twenty years and nothing... has rivaled the insane, frenzied build-up to the arrival of Kate and her Topshop line. I would put it right up there with the invasion of the Faulkand Islands and the first episode of AbFab, or at least the launch of the DVD of AbFab." Spoken like a true queen! [Barney's Babble]
