Scottish designer Christopher Kane presented an in-fucking-credible collection at London Fashion Week yesterday, pounding the runway with conservative silhouettes crossed with a stark, blazing, tactile sexuality.
At the edgiest of the fashion weeks, the serious risks come out. For better or worse.
We kind of love that Christopher Kane's Spring collection was inspired by the young Queen Elizabeth — even if, in some cases, the inspiration was very abstract. Not that we wouldn't be psyched to see the royal We in neon!

When Christopher Kane for Topshop hit stores, it was an instant sensation. And we won't mind seeing this collection hit the high street, either...although anyone who hates embroidery? You're pretty much SOL on this one.
