Buys - Topshop rolls in the glam with eyelets and embellishments

To match the glitzy bags, party clothes are also abound this season, this time trimmed with eyelets and embellishments to give this year's party look a little bling and zing. Look out especially for Christopher Kane and Kate Moss at Top Shop.

Glaswegian-born designer Christopher Kane's AW09 collection sees embellishments like delicate mirrors and eyelets lending detail and shine to his body conscious pieces.

There are 50s inspired briefs which are high waisted and worn as outerwear, slim fitting leggings, a slick long sleeved dress and a high necked body with cap sleeves.

Simple garments are given an element of luxury for eg: a black cotton shirt buttons-up to the collar to expose oversized black gems covering the neckline, a white jersey t-shirt dress features several rows of oversized white opaque gems around the neck, sleeves and hem of the dress. Evening dresses and camisoles have a deep V to accentuate the d├ęcolletage and feature oversized jewels around the neckline.

Kate Moss also takes on a vintage glamour this season with a collection of smart, chic pieces for a more grown-up look. Look out for a series of blouses and dresses in chiffon, voluminous with billowing sleeves and pointed collars or smock style.

Synonymous now with Kate’s designs, strong prints appear throughout sans vivid butterflies in bright green and orange flutter across a chiffon tunic dress, red and navy pansies  against the striped background of a crepe boat neck dress and intarsia knit hearts boldly emblazoned on a knitted cardigan.

Consistent of all Kate’s collections, both daywear and eveningwear are heavily embellished. Simple jersey tops are given a biker chick finish whether adorned with studs, beads or chain details, whilst eveningwear has a antique dressing-up box feel.Tarnished gold sequins are scattered over a maxi dress, waistcoat, bolero and playsuit, whilst ruched chiffon dresses in muted grey and blue are delicately embellished with silver beads.

Find them at: Topshop at ION Orchard #B2-01, Raffles City #02-39, and Vivo City #01-72.
