Christopher Kane continues to go from strength to strength, forever astonishing the fashion world and having us all hooked on his sublimely cool designs.
One might call the place where past and future meet, the present – it’s equally true that Christopher Kane’s Fall/Winter 2017 show sits at this junction as well. Pulling inspiration from centuries past as well as futuristic space missions, the collection touches first on the historical element with dresses crafted from stiff damasks, a product of longstanding Gainsborough Silks in England. After that, Kane moves onto a more futuristic aesthetic with iridescent taffeta shown off in industrial silhouettes, a spaceship print by the late Ionel Talpazan, foam-infused pumps and holographic jackets. The luxury Crocs continue to grow on us – this time they come with an exotic fur trim. For a look that speaks to both the sophistication of timeless fabrication and the simplicity of modernism, we adore the black velvet dress sloping off the single shoulder. It’s a design that speaks to the potential future vision of the designer as well.
