To my mind, Christopher Kane’s fall 2008 collection was a cross between Grendel’s mother and Nessie, what with the seaweed green pailettes dripping everywhere. And this handsome young Scotsman would know both those lassies well, I’d hope.
For spring 2009, Kane has continued with the pailette embellishment, but turned it from a shiny, tiny disc into leather (and fabric, I think) of all sizes.

Of course, the image everyone’s talking about is the angry(?) monkey t-shirt, à la Planet of the Apes, which is also an extension of his "natural woman" theme, if I’ve read his earlier collection properly.
This would be an interesting shirt to wear to a meeting, no?
