Kate moss is one of the few humans within the global who's, definitely and unfailingly, cool. It’s a function that has continuously underscored the numerous iterations of her profession: from the ethereal aesthetic of her early-years waifishness to her evolution into a powerhouse businesswoman, the fashionable enchantment of her insouciance has by no means waned. Once i arrive at her suite at the ritz to talk thru her new collaboration with zadig & voltaire, an hour or so earlier than the emblem stages its spring/summer 2020 display and a cocktail party in her honour, she’s curled up on a powder blue couch in silken pyjamas with a % of marlboro lighting fixtures on her lap, naked-confronted and loose-haired, every so often pottering round to attempt on some garments for the event (the winners?
