One of the hottest designers on the international market is Christopher Kane. He launched his eponymous in 2006 and since then, he’s been successful in every collection he has conjured up. Recently his collaboration with Topshop also won the hearts of many fashionistas from around the globe. I have selected just a few beautiful pieces he designed, using images from Net-a-Porter.
A cashmere biker jacket! How ingenious!! One thing everyone disliked about the biker jacket from the 80’s is that the leather was so stiff and cumbersome. Nowadays everyone prefers to wear garments made from soft fabrics that mold to your shape and feels luxurious on our skin. And you can’t get better than cashmere. How cute would this cardigan/jacket be with jeans and ankle boots, or a pencil skirt with stilettos? I like the ribbed, diamond and bauble details.
The next few pieces are just incredible. These dresses are pieces of wearable art. This cream sheer silk dress with scalloped details remind me of the current Chloe collection (see below), but in a more exaggerated form. I love the romantic mood it conjures and the curved hem. You will certainly turn heads and stand out from the crowd in this amazing dress. You could wear it night or day, I would not save it for a party, I would wear it going shopping.
The boudoir style garments from Chloe. Cute shorts in blush! Sweetness for the modern woman.
The next 4 Christopher Kane dresses are all ‘scalloped’ as well. I guess he really was onto something good. This is the Luca silk-gauze halter dress, a fabulous modern LBD. Halter-necks are so flattering on.
This dress has more of a ripple effect, I love the one-shoulder asymmetric cut.
You are probably wondering what the black wires are- they’re made from leather. Can you imaging how long it would have taken to make this dress? It is unbelievable. Very avant-garde. I love the ‘fins’ on the sides to give the lower half a fuller look.
Another sweet candy creation from scalloped ruffles. This looks like a 2 piece. I would put all of these pieces on my wall- Christopher Kane is a force to be reckoned with. I cannot wait to see his new creations. He really is able.
