So where's the news going to come from in London next week? The catwalks, or the high street? Hot designers of the moment Christopher Kane and Marios Schwab will unveil capsule collections for Topshop on Saturday, a few days before showing their respective main lines during London Fashion Week. And while the Topshop designer collections, which are generally priced from $83 to $217, might be a fraction of the cost of Kane's and Schwab's regular fare, they have all the trademarks of their full-priced lines. Kane's collection features nude chiffon minidresses with rococo lace trims at the sleeves and fluorescent zippers while Schwab's use layered Lycra to create his signature body-conscious silhouettes.

There is an article on Christopher Kane's (and Mario Schwab's) collection for Topshop in Today's Metro (the free newspaper that is dished out in sheffield everyday), confirming our worst nightmare that yes, it is indeed hitting the oxford circus store on Saturday, not Friday like Vogue had originally reported.

It also came with a new picture of a dress in the collection - dark navy, ruffles on the chest, strapless, zip front creates a "V" shape on the decolletage, with a breeches like shape from the waist down in velvet, and protruding pockets, 120. It was styled with a fluorescent orange bra underneath, and looked pretty decent.

I'll try and get hold of a copy, and scan the article for you guys.

So they live up to the fashionista's expectation then? - meaning, they didn't look crap?

Well done on your purchase though, Susie! I was going to go but I have so much on with getting my dissertation done, I couldn't really take another day out of my work

Me and my friend were in Blackheath earlier though discussing Christopher Kane and she didn't know when his collection is up online either. But hopefully I might still be able to get something - I was expecting a dissapointment like Mouret for Gap and V&R for H&M...but sounds like Kane has done well with his collection.

Do you have photos?
