Christopher Kane meets Donatella Versace

What happens when Donatella Versace finally hooks up with the Scottish designer she's long supported, Christopher Kane? A truly special fashion collaboration. Christopher hid out of sight at yesterday's presentation of the Versus collection, clearly nervous about how the bags, shoes and sparkly jewels would be received by the British press. But he didn't need to be. There were distinctive pieces that had us all salivating, reminiscent of that iconic Christopher Kane collection from A/W '07, where little black dresses were given an edge with Swarovski crystals, the Versus collection has all the glamour of Donatella with the rock'n'roll touch of Christopher. Designed around three broad themes: the multi-faceted ‘Diamond', the ‘Moschettone' (that's a classic alpine climber's spring clip to you and me) and the geometric pattern of a ‘Labyrinth' we think they will be the show-stopping accessories this winter. So no wonder Christopher was celebrating in the Principe bar last night. We spied him chilling out over drinks with his sister Tammy and model booker Russell Marsh - with shoe guru Nicholas Kirkwood stopping by to say hi too. Sweet...
