This week for our weekly flashback series, I have dug out the April 2007 issue of UK Vogue. The cover marked the launch of Kate Moss' first collection for Topshop and with Kate's latest collection due out next week, I thought this particular flashback made perfect sense (or just another excuse to use my new scanner).
The cover features Kate Moss posing up a storm for Nick Knight as she showcases one of her first Topshop creations. Kate and Nick (who also photographed Kate's new adverts for Topshop) have shot together on numerous occasions, so it's no wonder the whole shoot turned out so good, they've had plenty of practice. Vogue's fashion director Kate Phelan styled the shoot, Sam McKnight cared for Kate's hair and Val Garland applied minimal makeup.
As you can expect, these back issues of Vogue are just full of hidden treasures. We see appearances from Angela Lindvall, Anja Rubik, Milla Jovovich and an exclusive interview with Kate Moss is inside. Kate's interview documents her collaboration with Topshop and her relationship with Phillip Green. The article compiled by Alexandra Shulman is accompanied by six images of Kate, all with the Croydon model wearing her first-ever designs for the British retailer.
It's almost incredible to think this was just over six years ago. Kate is back on the cover of Vogue's May 2014 issue to display her Spring 2014 collection.
