Judging by Daniel Lalonde.... Long Wait at H&M... Crazy for Kane...

Daniel Lalonde, fashion critic? The president and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton North America took a spin outside his regular job description.

CROCODILE ROCK: Christopher Kane fans crowded outside Topshop’s Oxford Circus flagship in the early hours of Friday to get their hands on the designer’s latest collection, Christopher Kane for Topshop. The 39-piece clothing and accessories collection is Topshop’s largest designer collaboration to date, and features sleeveless dresses printed with a giant photo of an open-mouthed crocodile, and embellished knitwear. “I want a crocodile dress,” said Janis McNie, 20, who works at Browns in London. “I prefer the cut of the armholes of the Topshop dress to his mainline version.” Prices range from 30 pounds, or $49, for a black scarf embellished with crystals, to 150 pounds, or $245, for a black eyelet baby-doll dress. A spokesman for Topshop did not provide first-day sales figures, but said 75 percent of Topshop’s online sales on Friday came from the new Kane collection.
