The one-off line Christopher Kane designed for Topshop — which editors have been drooling over all summer — finally hits stores today.

We saw the collection for the first time in person yesterday, and it is definitely worth shopping. However, be warned that some of the embellished dresses are completely sheer, which isn't obvious in photos. So you'll have to invest in something from American Apparel to wear underneath, unless you've got a Lady Gaga inside of you and feel comfortable walking around in essentially only your underwear (Kane's Topshop collection does include embellished high-waisted panties, if you want to take this look to the next level).

If investing in $260 see-through dresses for fall feels wrong to you, as it did for us, the embellished hoodies and sweatpants are definitely worth considering, as are the alligator pieces, all of which you'll probably get a lot of use out of. The alligator pieces may be the most coveted items in the collection (many of our friends in the Tents seemed to want one), so hustle if that's on your list. Shop the collection in stores and online.
