PHILIP GREEN has rubbished claims that Kate Moss‘s recent Topshop collection hasn’t sold well. The Arcadia mogul clarified for anyone who knows less about retail than him (which is everyone) that discounting pieces as the season comes to an end is absolutely normal practice.
“The range was very, very successful and we waited until the end of the season to clear whatever was left. No more complicated than that,” Green explained when asked by The Daily Mail why pieces had gone into the sale. “There’s nothing untoward, whether it’s got Kate Moss in it, or any other brand, what we’ve got left at the end of the season around the globe, we sell. There’s nothing that sells 100 per cent, whatever it is – it doesn’t exist in any business.”
