Kate Moss is reprising her Topshop line.

The British model has collaborated with many different brands over the years, but one of her first was with the high street fashion chain. She signed with them in 2006 and her clothes hit stores the following year.

She is set to launch a new line with the retailer, with 40 pieces due to hit stores in April 2014.

"I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop," she told WWD. "Now more than ever, with London being at the forefront of fashion it feels like I'm back home working with Topshop."

Moss has already started the design process and has been working alongside the company's creative director Kate Phelan. Her new line is expected to cover accessories, clothing and footwear and will be available in 40 countries and online. Partnerships mean the line will hit countries such as America via Nordstrom and Paris via Galeries Lafayette.

"The first time around was such a lot of fun, and she has been sorely missed," Tophop owner Sir Philip Green explained.

He added the company is planning pop-up stores to help push the new line.

WWD suggests Moss and Green decided to resume their collaboration while on holiday earlier this year.

The model's first line with the store was based on her wardrobe and it's thought the new one will follow suit. Her debut offerings were praised by fashion professionals and quickly sold out, with fans queuing to get their hands on the pieces.
