christopher kane’s versus collection is the spitting image of these odd technicolor super slutty cut-out dresses i was obsessed with drawing when i was much much younger. this was in the hey-day of delia*s, when the catalog was horizontal and awesome, and i would entitle my designs “chloe dress” and “tiffany dress” and other shit like that.

i wish i had a picture to show you. i was ahead of my time.

usually i’m not at all crazy about donatella versace’s neon spandex dreams but in the hands of christopher kane (incidentally, pretty well-known for neon spandex himself) cut outs and mini skirts become positively adorable.

we adoooooored christopher kane’s f/w 2009 collection, sorta more than we ever really adored the neon mini dresses he made his name on.

look look look!


the top, we are not super crazy about (it belongs on an 80s career woman with feathered bangs and walk-to-work sneakers) (ie, melanie griffith in working girl), but the skirt, rules.



we know, we know, we said we were sick of already-done sheer styles. but these are just too good. both are for wearing all the time but especially to fancy and romantic italian dinners in small candlelit restaurants with dark red booths lining the walls and a man with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth playing the cello mournfully yet tastefully in the corner . . .


if botticelli’s (the birth of) venus was going out for drinks on the lower east side.


if botticelli’s (the birth of) venus had to study for an exam tomorrow.


jessica stam makes me swoon, as do the dress + shoes she sports.

and finally,

c-kane-4mr. kane’s torso gets eaten by a gorilla.
