Christopher Kane continues to go from strength to strength, forever astonishing the fashion world and having us all hooked on his sublimely cool designs.
What hides beneath the gilded exterior of the domestic goddess? Christopher Kane’s SS18 collection was an exploration of where pristine cleanliness meets the roiling interior such tidy finishings tend to hide. Deconstructed cardigans, asymmetrically lace-panelled sleeves and feather duster-referencing poofs sewn to netted tops seemed to highlight this mood. The designer cited suburban eroticism as inspiration -- think Cynthia Payne, once infamous for running a South London brothel gentlemen would visit (and they would follow their visit with a chaste cup of tea in the drawing room afterward). The luxury Crocs remain an ugly-chic mainstay, now coming down the runway covered with jewelled embellishments.
