Dalmatian Salvation

Who knew there would be not one but two collections this season, specifically themed around 101 Dalmatians (though there were quite a few with a Cruella de Vil attitude towards fur but that's another matter...). Well, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac focused on the Disney cartoon for his small passage of Dalmatians' lovin in his A/W 11-10 collection but it was Topshop Unique's expansion on the theme beyond cartoonish antics that really caught my imagination. It wasn't of course just about the Pongo/Perdita spots that invaded the first portion of the show. Instead the Topshop unique show seemed to riff off the author of 101 Dalmations (written in 1956) Dodie Smith and her time and her London playwright days in the 1930s.
