Kate Moss Dishes On Her New Longchamp Line—and Her Favorite Place In The World

Supermodel Kate Moss celebrated the launch of her new handbag range for Longchamp last night with a fete attended by 700 of her nearest and dearest (including rocker beau Jamie Hince, natch) at the swanky Ritz Club in Paris. In a video posted on longchamp.com Moss says, “I love handbags. I’ve got a huge collection. Girls just like handbags I think.” The party was tricked out with wall-to-wall zebra carpeting and zebra print wall coverings, a nod to the lining inside the purses in Moss’ new collection—which also served as the perfect backdrop for the 36-year old’s glamorous color-coded black lace Valentino cocktail dress and cropped white jacket. Of the venue Moss says, “The Ritz Club is like my old haunt. It’s always been one of my favorite places to come, really in the whole world. If I was to have a party anywhere it’d be here.” Photographs of Moss’ satchels were projected onto the walls of the club, in front of a crowd that included French Vogue editrix Carine Roitfeld and other fashion industry insiders in town for Paris Fashion Week. Through a statement, Moss chats more about her designs: “You know, for a day bag, I like a certain kind of shape, and I love a clutch that opens like an envelope, and is flat, and so on. That was our starting point, and at every stage I would add my own personal twist,” and adds that “For me, a great bag should be comfortable, and it should be light.” Look out for the bags to hit Longchamp boutiques and Bloomingdales’ flagship in N.Y.C. on February 11th.
