KATE: The Kate Moss Book
KATE: The Kate Moss Book is a highly personal retrospective of Britain’s biggest global star’s career, tracing her evolution from “new girl with potential” to one of the most iconic models of all time. The book – which yes… is predominantly pictorial-based – has been created by none other than Kate Moss herself, in collaboration with creative director Fabien Baron, her ex Jefferson Hack and Jess Hallet.
Told through images that Moss has personally selected, KATE shows the influence of her collaborations with top photographers and artists over the last two decades, and clearly demonstrates why her career has had, and continues to have, such incredible longevity. It is released with eight unique covers, shot by Mario Testino, Corinne Day, Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti and Juergen Teller.
Despite her troubled past Moss’ star has now shone brightly for 25 years and no matter what is put before her, or sniffed up her nose, Kate Moss has been the beacon for British fashion, single-handedly challenging the world’s view of Brits in tweed, khaki slacks and a jumper wrapped around the neck. Despite being only 5’7″ Moss bore a shorter waif-like figure in relation to her counterpoints, the 90s Amazonian supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista.
Including many ‘never-before-seen’ images from her own archives and those of the illustrious photographers with whom she has worked, KATE is a must-have for anyone interested in one of the most iconic models in the history of fashion media and modern culture.
