Sir Philip Green scoffs at suggestions Kate Moss range sold badly
Topshop owner Sir Philip Green has rubbished claims that Kate Moss' collection for the high street store was selling badly after items were spotted in the sale.
Claims that Kate Moss' collection for Topshop sold badly have been rubbished by Sir Philip Green.
The CEO of Arcadia - the fashion company which owns Topshop Miss Selfridge, BHS and Dorothy Perkins - has rubbished claims that Kate's collection has failed to sell at Topshop, after many items were spotted in the sale section.
When asked by the Daily Mail newspaper why the Kate Moss collection had been added to the sale rack, Green replied: ''The range was very, very successful and we waited until the end of the season to clear whatever was left. No more complicated than that.''
Insisting that the relationship between model and store was fine, the businessman added that this process eventually happens to all the apparel his stores sell.
He assured the publication: ''There's nothing untoward, whether it's got Kate Moss in it, or any other brand, what we've got left at the end of season around the globe, we sell. There's nothing that sells 100 per cent, whatever it is - it doesn't exist in any business.''
There had been speculation that Kate's second collaborative collection with Topshop would be her last, as the new face of the high street's A/W 2014 campaign, Cara Delevingne could be designing for them in the near future.
Talking about the possibility of Kate returning for a third collection, Green remained non-committal, only saying: ''I don't know, I haven't decided. We haven't had that conversation yet.''
