Christopher Kane for Topshop – your opinions?


Another week, another designer diffusion line for Topshop…

Most of you weren’t impressed with the Jonathan Saunders line, but what will you make of these pieces by Christopher Kane? Personally, I think these are the kind of clothes I’d really need to see on an actual person to be able to make an informed opinion on, because I suspect that the photography here isn’t doing them too many favours. With that said, I think I just might like the leather bodice dress on the right, although the cut out shirt dress on the left looks straight out of the Little Dress Shop of Horrors, especially for anyone with love handles to hide.

What do you think of these dresses?

    I don’t know why one would wear sleeves without shoulders. I mean, I guess if your shoulders are hot it would work out… but whose shoulders really get hot?

    Why cut-out shoulders? WHY, Christopher Kane?!
    The dress in the middle might have just been a very cute babydoll dress if the shoulders had just been attached. And you wouldn’t look as if someone had just been at you with a hacksaw.

    I wish they were shown on models with accessories, ect. because I think they really have potential with the right “vibe”

Christopher Kane is upset because Victoria Beckham wears his clothes, needs to get over himself

VictoriabeckhamchristopheCatwalk Queen reports today that designer Christopher Kane was apparently none too happy to see Victoria Beckham pictured wearing one of his dresses. (So he’ll be horrified to see the picture on the left, then, of Victoria in… one of his dresses. Because Christopher Kane totally reads The Fashion Police, you know*). Oh boo hoo, poor Christopher, woe is he!

"I don’t want to sound presumptuous," says Kane, sounding presumptious, "but I’ve worked too hard for my
stuff to be seen on the front of the Sun newspaper. I couldn’t do anything about it, to be
honest. She wanted to borrow something, but I said no, so she went out
and bought it. I’ve got nothing against her, but she’s not the woman I
imagine wearing my dresses. I think more of women like Carine Roitfeld
because she’s sexy and intelligent. Posh Spice doesn’t even get a

    Perhaps he should stop worrying over Victoria wearing his dress and start worrying over the fact that the dress he’s selling and she happens to be wearing is ugly. At least she makes it look a little decent.

    After reading the comment that C.Kane made it made me think twice about how he really is as a person. And to be honest he doesn’t sound like the type of person I or anyone would want to be around.But I personally thinks he makes great clothes just have a messed up attitude.

    omg! he’s so rude!! I’m no fan of Victoria but Kane’s words make me want to slap his face. Dude wake up! you design clothes and sells them to people, so anyone who can afford it is free to buy them. I’m really shocked because she actually bought the dress as borrowing wasn’t allowed. he is so full of himself, i like his clothes but this is just wrong. Anyway I bet VB is laughing now, Christopher don’t worry she doesn’t need your dresses anymore , she’s designing her own line (and it’s working) , and I’m sure a lot of people would be pleased to lend VB a dress today. I can understand why this woman is successful now, people have been mocking her a lot in the past.
