Where the wild things are

Christopher Kane is one of my current favorite Fashion Designers. I love what he did for Spring 2009. His Planet Of The Apes inspired collection was beautiful to me. I especially have grown very fond of the ape/gorilla printed pieces. One of my favorite blogs, Jak & Jil even showcased some lovers of the look here. Nylon Magazine had Kristen Stewart rocking the dress and Fashion risk taker Rihanna was also seen sporting one of Christopher Kane's pieces as well as many others. Unfortunatly I haven't been able to snag one up, so imagine how thrilled I was when i first found out Kane was doing a collobration with Topshop to release a 39 piece collection!!! I just knew he would do something similiar and he has. This time around the print used was a Crocodile. I love it! Check out the Christopher Kane x Topshop Lookbook here.

Lacoste has made the Crocodile a reoccuring image with their logo but they weren't the only one's inspired by the reptile this season. Take a look at the trend board I have created.
