>> Yesterday, Christopher Kane apparently hid out of sight, nervous, while his 20-or-so-piece accessory capsule collaboration with mentor Donatella Versace for the newly-relaunched Versus line was presented. Diane Pernet deemed the crystal studded sandals and bags "a huge success," and Donatella was also pleased — "Who better than Christopher to revive it? He made so many sketches and they were all so good, we had a hard time editing" — so it seems Kane had nothing to worry about. The collection ranges from $500-$1500, and will not be in freestanding Versace stores, because the hopes are that boutique and department stores will pick up the line; clothing follows for Spring 2010.
