'She makes science fiction something else'

 A new found love: Christopher Kane Resort 2011.

Contrasting leather with silk/ chiffon and making it work: genius. Digital print is the way foreward and as usual, Christopher Kane is ahead of the crowd.

Reminds me of:

  • Barberella!

  • Thierry Mugler.
  • Peter Pilotto for Kipling. LOVE.
An explosion of stardust!

I have always had faith in Christopher Kane despite the odd ensembles that I believe have failed.
Dragged through a hedge?
Confused art teacher?
Even the model can't pull this one off.
Eccentric grandma drank too much sherry and got over excited with some lace curtains from the 1960s and a sewing machine. FAIL! FAIL! FAIL!

This is more like it :).

A small snippet of his Central St Martins Collection that made me fall in love with him and also made him an established designer and welcomed to the fashion world with open arms.

Super bummed out when I missed out on the Christopher Kane 2007 collaboration for Topshop (before most people even knew who he was!):

Contrasting neutral with neon, lace detailing, fitted top with feminine floaty pleats. 

Sad times :(

On the upside, check out his new print for J-Brand Agnes jeans:
