London Fashion Week: Christopher Kane

Part of Kane’s appeal is his ability to blend the incongruous and unrelated into something wrong, but right.

His spring 13 collection featured rubber, gaffer tape, plastic wing nuts and Frankenstein’s monster, but Kane’s lightness of touch gave it coherence and clarity. This was helped by the pale and pastel tones, which meant there was continuity when Kane put simple fold-fronted dresses next to others made from frilly disposable shower caps. Despite the bolts and tape, the collection was feminised by the stuck-down lace, bow details and sheer fabrics.

In short Not one the rest of the market will ape too literally but the ice-cream shades, bows and sheer pieces will make the transition.
