>> Christopher Kane was just shooting the lookbook for his first ever pre-collection with Alla Kostromicheva last week, and now it's available for the looking. The sparkly chokers he had on set didn't make the final cut, but no matter — the dresses stand alone. Their mushroom cloud prints were derived from nuclear test images Christopher found on the UK Ministry of Defense's website: "I'm so fed up with florals . . . I like the crazy-bright chemical colors [of the images]. The way they're sinister — but beautiful." The dresses will sell, but the shoes aren't up for grabs: "We didn't have any shoes, so we cobbled them together ourselves with gaffer tape and whatnot in the studio."
