Supermodel Karlie Kloss designed a series of metal-framed, retro-inspired sunglasses for Warby Parker in 2014. (She also, more recently, has turned her highly Instagrammable love of baking into more than just a hobby, collaborating with Momofuku Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi on a series of “Klossie” cookies.)
Though she designed a capsule for Topshop a few years back, her recent collaboration with Equipment is the far more glamorous one. Think leopard-printed pajama tops and silk blouses — that Equipment staple — with lightning bolt patterns.
Model, actress, and one time fashion designer, Delevingne designed a capsule collection for Mulberry (a label whose campaigns she once fronted, as well).
Model Campbell teamed up with longtime friend, illustrator Christabel MacGreevy, on a line of patches called Itchy Scratchy Patchy. Last month, they announced they would soon expand into ready-to-wear — because you need some good denim to iron those patches on to, after all.
Always a red carpet and street style favorite, Rocha expanded her personal brand late last year. She’s the designer and brains behind Co+Co, her latest design endeavor (she had previously worked on collaborations with brands like Botkier and Bauble Bar).
“I call them ‘your savior’ pieces,” Rubik told W of her capsule collection for IRO. The Polish model lends her street style cred to the already chic Parisian label, designing easy pieces like a black hoodie worthy of Mr. Robot and a sleek, draped black dress.
Model-turned-actress-turned-designer Liv Tyler recently ventured into fashion with her capsule collection for Belstaff. And, as Coco Rocha demonstrated, a capsule can often be a prelude to a whole line.
French model Chloe Gosselin seems to have taken to design most ably of all her peers — she’s been named a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund 2016 for her shoe designs.
Alexa Chung collaborated on an AG Jeans capsule collection, and with a personal style as distinct as hers, it’s a wonder it’s taken her this long to foray into designing her own line. Alexachung is slated to debut May 2017.
