As part of the celebration, the brand has announced that British supermodel Kate Moss will be the featured model in the LagunaMoon Autumn/Winter 2011 catalog. When the beyond-iconic Kate Moss models for anyone, it’s noteworthy. But when she does it for a Japanese gyaru brand, that’s huge news here in Tokyo.

Behind LagunaMoon’s Decision To Work With Kate Moss
Kate Moss’ fashion sense, with her penchant for personalizing her daily wear by mixing accessories and vintage style, is watched by many and was one of the earliest inspirations for LagunaMoon. LagunaMoon wanted Kate Moss to be their icon for an audience yearning for her style.
