London Fashion Week: Christopher Kane

The appeal of a Kane collection lies in part with its skill in juxtaposing attitude and artfulness, the pretty and the peculiar.

There was plenty going on with this show, the first since PPR bought the label, but it managed to avoid coming off like the Frankenstein’s monster from the spring collection, as each point and counterpoint created pace and excitement. The seemingly diverse fox fur, feathers, mannish proportions, abbreviated kilts, florals, camouflage, detached hems, overlapping panes, velvet, embroidered MRI brain scans, metallics and spindly tinsel-like materials all cohered in the most beautiful buffet of fashion seen in London. It could have been chaotic, but the sure hand Christopher and sister Tammy have honed since the label’s 2006 debut kept things in check, and oddly commercial. The voluminous navy coat with kilty straps set the tone and great collarless jackets, stunning knits and dress after delectable dress will all be winners at retail.

In short Kane at its best and a statement of intent as it embarks on its PPR journey.
