Kate Moss Let’s Us In On Her Vintage Style Tips

This month, Rizzoli’s Musings on Fashion and Style: Museo de la Moda is hitting the shelves – a publication featuring and edited by Moss herself. Here is the low-down on her shopping tips and styling tricks for six key vintage styles from the museum’s collection with Bazaar.

“I get excited whenever I find British designers from the 1960s and ’70s in a vintage shop, and I usually buy them. Yves Saint Laurent designs from the 1960s epitomize bohemian chic and are from an era I would have loved to live in.”

Make a swinging statement

“When I shop for peasant dresses, I really don’t look at labels; I’m usually drawn by the colors. I like to wear them with heeled boots. My daughter, Lila, just wore an Ossie Clark dress that I got at auction when she was 10 and had been saving for her. It once belonged to Twiggy.”

Go for the glamour

“I have always gravitated toward bias-cut dresses because they are easy and comfortable but also really flattering and glamorous. When I was a teenager, I wore bias-cut dresses with trainers, but now I wear heels.”

All about the drape

“Goddess dresses, like the Jean Dessès gown…are good to wear, since draping gives you great body shape. Of the Champagne jumpsuit she wore to Moët & Chandon’s 150th anniversary, she said: “I kept the accessories really simple, as it didn’t need over-styling.”

Stay garden party ready

“The museum has a lot of 1930s tea dresses, and Jorge actually gave me one from his collection…I usually accessorize with a sandal, a small handbag, and delicate jewelry, maybe a dangly earring. I like the dreaminess of these dresses; the soft, flowing fabric.”

Give it an edge

“It’s incredible to touch pieces worn by John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix. A studded moto…is the type of thing I like to wear to festivals or just every day to rock up a look.
