Best fashion collaborations: spring 2014

Published

If there's one thing that will get us waiting in queues and rapidly hitting the purchase button, it's a good collaboration and this season is peppered with some very big sponsored_longforms.

From the return of the blockbuster collaboration (Kate Moss and Topshop), to leading designers hitting the high street (Peter Pilotto for Target and Katie Eary for River Island) and the fashion pairing that may never happen again (Riccardo Tisci for Nike), here are the best collections to mark in your diary.

  • Kate Moss for Topshop

    Britain's favourite model - who celebrated her 40th birthday this year - returns to Arcadia headquarters with her first collection for Topshop since 2010. She's been working with legendary stylist Katy England and Topshop creative director Kate Phelan. We're expecting the next generation of floral tea dresses and denim cut-offs.

  • Peter Pilotto for Target

    They've just won the 2014 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund award and now Peter Pilotto is launching its highly anticipated 57-piece collection for Target - the American department store that collaborated with designers long before H&M. It's the first time a Target exclusive collection will be available worldwide (via Net-A-Porter).

  • Sophia Webster for J.Crew

    At J. Crew's New York Fashion Week presentation last autumn, they excitedly debuted a collaboration with the whimsical British shoe designer Sophia Webster. As Jenna Lyons put it: Webster’s shoes are "a beautiful world for your feet to spend the day in".

  • Topshop and Adidas Originals

    If anything is to get us to the gym it's Adidas sportswear designed by Topshop. This 20-piece collection aims to bring some femininity to Adidas Originals’ sports designs, so that it can be worn for fashion and performance.

  • Katie Eary for River Island

    The girl behind street couture is finally making her high street debut via River Island's Design Forum with an 18-piece collection inspired by the radical, drug-centric novel Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. Think: bleached denim, dipped-hems, billowing sleeves, animal prints and fringed bags. Prices range from £15 to £120.

  • Riccardo Tisci and Nike

    Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci has worn the same style of Nikes for 16 years, so it's only fitting that he takes the creative reins at Nike. Using the 'genderless' Air Force 1 shoe as his starting point, he's transformed the trainer into a knee-high boot (though low and hi-tops are also available).
