Christopher Kane for Topshop: what do you think?

christopher-kane-crocodile-With all of the fashion weeks and award shows we’ve had to police this month, Christopher Kane’s latest collection for Topshop almost managed to slip under the Fashion Police radar.

We’re correcting that now, though, by bringing you a selection of items for the new line, including  this crocodile print dress which is basically a cheaper version of the gorilla prints Kane released as part of his main collection earlier this year.

You can view more of the collection for Topshop below the jump, or at the Topshop website. Be warned, though: you can only buy one of each item, and no more than five pieces from the collection in total. What do you think? We reckon Lady Gaga has a lot to answer for…

    The body, bodycon dresses, leggings etc are definitely not for me. But as for the crocodile dress, i am somehow attracted to it… I was horified by the monkey dresses and t-shirts (especially about the hairy back thing), but the crocodile inspires me… Maybe because the crocodile is not hairy at all :)) And probably also because i always thought crocodiles are cute animals… Anyway, we don’t have Topshop in Romania, and the site does not ship to our country, so no crocodile for me 🙂

    It looks like her crotch is going to eat me. I’m scared.

      I think all of the pieces with shisha (embroidery that uses little mirrors) and eyelets would benefit greatly from better lighting or something to show how the reflections shift with movement.

      Heck, the whole line looks badly advertised. What’s with the pose for the girl in the yellow Bandage Dress? (It does come in another color) And I’m not sure I’d call that a bandage dress so much as a dress with mesh cutouts. And is it my imgaination, or are the eyelets on the hips of the Embellished Bodycon Dress too low to properly highlight the arch of the hips?

      Although, all of the Embellished tops are pretty awful, with the way they pretty much draw the eye to the breasts and abdomen. And don’t miss the eyelet dress (not shown here). The pattern of eyelets isn’t bad, but the fabric is sheer and looks really cheap. Check out the images from the back of the dress on a mannequin; it looks just atrocious. Actually it looks like all of the Embellished but two styles are mesh fabric, and it all looks tacky on the mannequins.

      He’s got an Embellished Hoodie, however, that has a much better pattern on it, to go with not being transparent. If they made a dress or top with a similar pattern and solid fabric, I’d be sorely tempted to get it.

      Yes, my first thought was “vagina dentata”

    I like the dress shape but the print is a little strange in placement and therefore affects the proportion. So yes, have to agree it’s scary!

    I agree about bad placement. I don’t usually like screen printed clothes unless they are tees anyway, but the placement of the mouth is just akward.

    The bodycon dress would be quite nice if it wasn’t see-through, but the crocodile looks like an expression of castration anxiety.

    I really don’t understand why people want to wear scary looking and ugly animals on their clothing?
    Not a fan of any of the pieces shown.
