Report: Kate Moss returning to David Yurman

April 15, 2014

New York--Model Kate Moss is reportedly shooting a campaign with David Yurman next week, marking a reconciling between the model and designer after a not-so-amicable split in 2011.

Various news sources reported Monday that Moss, an English model who has worked with brands including Calvin Klein, Chanel and Christian Dior, will be flying to Turks and Caicos next week to shoot a campaign for the popular jewelry brand.

David Yurman did not respond to a request for information on the reports.

Moss began working for Yurman in 2004, a partnership that came to a halt in 2011 when the model was accused of copying Yurman’s design aesthetic in her collaboration with Parisian jewelry house Fred. Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen replaced Moss.

Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton was tapped for Yurman’s 2013 advertising campaign, “Beauty in Contrast.” The campaign also featured French model Anais Mali, Dree Hemingway and Catrinel Marlon.
