Crave: Christopher Kane Gorilla Shirts

I don’t know what all the fuss is about when it comes to these ugly/sexy Christopher Kane gorilla shirts/dresses, but I love them. It makes as much sense as why people enjoy sitting in the rain or feel the need to eat Oreos with peanut butter. Celebs from Rihanna to our Sea of Shoes girl have been sporting them out on the town. (If anyone wants to time warp with me you’ll remember that indie fave Kristen Stewart even sported a gorilla dress on the march edition of Nylon.) Let’s investigate, shall we?Apparently, Kane has been chomping at the bit to unleash a t-shirt line, and this unisex set of gorilla shirts is clearly a hit. To top it off, he’s still only 26 years old. (We know, barf.) Background: He first launched his label and first official show back in 2006 with his sister Tammy Kane and has gone from tight neon dresses to gorilla shirts in the blink of an eye, (and several collections). Winning absurdly prestigious awards resulted in Anna Wintour showing up at his school show and personally orchestrating an introduction to Donatella Versace, and after graduating a couple years ago, Kane’s already had two showings at London Fashion Week. Most recently, Kane worked on a Top Shop collection in London and I’m dying to know when it’s coming here. Let’s hope soon. Now, the real question is: Compared to one of his typically $3,000 dresses, $419 seems reasonable for a shirt, no? Or um? Yeah. []
