Christopher Kane for Topshop, hubba

The Independent also interviewed UK fashion's wunderkid Christopher Kane today in advance of his new range for Topshop, which is hitting the stores on Friday to coincide with LFW. Kane jokes that his Topshop range is all part of his 'get 'em young' strategy, when realistically it is his way of thanking Toppers for their investment in him through the NewGen programme.

The Independent explain this investment as:

Sponsored by Topshop since 2001, designers receive between £5,000 and £10,000. Not only does the scheme help designers set up their own labels, it provides a link between catwalk, high street and consumers, as designers usually create a capsule collection for Topshop in return. Kane's range will be sold in as many stores as Kate Moss's.

I have grabbed some shots from to show you my favourite bits from the new collection. Must say I would have been super gutted if I had bought one of Kane's £225 gorilla tees from Dover Street Market only to see the alligator version cropping up in Topshop for a snip at £45. However, I didn't, so I'm quite glad! See you in the queue on Friday morning
