Kate Moss Topshop launches Christmas 2009 collection. The collection presents an assortment of luxurious yet sophisticated oriental-inspired pieces for day and evening festive wear, along with an exclusive lingerie preview online.

Influences of traditional Chinese and Japanese clothing run through the collection. The Cheongsam dress, normally made in embroidered satin is brought up to date in a gunmetal lurex knit whilst kimono shape dresses in chiffons and silks offer a sensual laid-back style. The sleeves on the 'Geisha Rose' print blouse are voluminous and bell-shaped. Prints of bamboo, flying stalks, lotus flowers and fireworks are flamboyant reflecting the richness of the orient.

Knitwear is given glamorous details, offering comfort and sparkle for winter dressing. A soft grey cashmere tunic is dressed up with a silver beaded obi belt whilst two classic knit crew-neck jumpers in slate grey and navy are spruced up with jewelled shoulder pads stitched to the outside of the garment. A series of lurex-striped shrugs and sequinned knit waistcoats when worn over a casual outfit add instant night-time luxury.

The black rectangular jagged sequin bandeau maxi dress epitomises festive party-wear mixed with Kate's signature rock-n-roll style. Elsewhere a traditional floral beaded long sleeve dress is one-shouldered and the skirt of a strapless mini dress is covered in black mesh petals and gold beads. Snake print leather obi belts wrap around smart dresses and ostrich feathers adorn the sleeves of a shift dress.

Continuing from the previous season, Christmas embraces chic, smart tailoring. An exquisite satin pencil skirt in navy or black is asymmetrically buttoned down the front and a black grosgrain boat neck shift dress is the ultimate in ladylike dressing. A shrunken Victoriana jacket with frogging and cornelli detailing is easy to wear, and a jacquard Princess coat with jewelled buttons stands out from the collection.

Underwear makes a prominent return this season, with the debut of nightwear and an exclusive online preview of the new lingerie range. Beautiful printed chiffons in triangle shape bras and teddies are feminine, whilst a leopard print balcony bra with an eyelash lace trim has instant sex-appeal. Floral printed silk pyjamas are adorned with an embroidered 'K' and come with a drawstring bag in the same material making it the perfect gift for Christmas.

When asked what the inspiration was behind the new nightwear collection, Kate said: "I love beautiful nightwear, it makes you feel great. I've collected millions of vintage slips, nighties, camis and bed jackets. Who doesn't want fab nightwear for Christmas?"
