London Fashion Week AW15: Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane1

Christopher Kane kicked off his collection with tailored fitted jackets and pencils skirts, all black with a red trim.

Red remained a constant throughout the collection, donned on sandals, pointed ankle boots, bags and bold dresses. Royal blue was another colour which was heavily featured through the collection, the electric colour was featured in floral detailing, which is more commonly seen in spring/summer collections.

Leather also made an appearance within his collection, with a snake skin skirt, a deep blue leather skirt and a deep navy blue trench coat.

Asymmetric cut velour dresses were integrated with mesh, and some were cut off the shoulder, giving them an edgy alternative look.

The collection ended with mid-calf flowing dresses, which featured block colour silhouette prints of naked human bodies; the feet were positioned at the end of the skirts which made for a unique and interesting choice of design.

Kane told Vogue that the inspiration for the human body designs came from a course of life drawing classes that he staged at his Dalston studio for his whole team to partake in – he said it reflected “a sense of togetherness,” adding: “Everything I do essentially comes from drawing, it ultimately reflects how I feel. I wanted a feeling of attraction and sensuality in the collection, something sexual but not grotesque.”

The models wore natural make-up and strong brows, with their hair styled in a middle part tucked behind the ears in a sleek back straight finish.

The 32-year-old took us through Friday at the office, though to a night out and casual weekend wear. The collection visited a kaleidoscope of textures, cuts and design. There was something for everyone to lust after in this collection, big thumbs up from us.
