American Apparel Neon Lace /

We're obsessed with Christopher Kane, we'd like to be his friend.  First he made the galaxy dresses and skirts in 2010 (we cried about wanting one) and then he led the pack that took neon out of the house-music-80s-infused hole it was sitting in, and made it acceptable for us twenty something middle-to-working class normal people to wear.  Thank you.  However, WHY did it take the high street so long to catch on?  The markets did, everytime I went up North the Leeds markets were going crazy for it.  But there is something about buying lace from a stall with a man with grubby finger nails, takes the class out of it.

It comes as no surprise that the first high street brand to try it was American Apparel, who seem to live by the motto 'if you're parents don't sigh is dismay at it, it isn't worth buying.'  Love this brand, who have come on so far from their days of just making every basic imaginable in 10 colours.  They're stuff is really fun.  Now, our favourite neon colour was the peach/orange.  It somehow isn't as garish as the others, and here is AA's take on the Kane look:
