• Christopher Kane • S/S14 •

Christopher Kane is a designer capable of making science interesting. Photosynthesis to be exact. The labeling of a flower on a sweater really made laugh and say 'Only Christopher Kane could do this'. Last season everything was precise. Those feathered looks. I get the shivers from the fabulousness.

This season it was sharp tailoring. The opener was a black cropped tuxedo with a plunging neckline and metallic silver petal like cutouts. The next few looks were more sexy and revealing. Of the 55 piece collection I can't say I dislike anything. I genuinely can't - it's that amazing.

Look 6, 7, 16, 25, 38, 41, 44, 45, 48 and 51 were just some of the most eye catching of my favourites. Each had the same theme and were for the most part uniquely different. 

Four London trends were featured in the collection; metallics, pink, florals and airiness. All of the four trends were executed perfectly, in true Kane style. Every season he gets better and his inspirations more interesting. Frankenstein was even an inspiration, and for a Spring collection and another time it was 'Cruising' a film starring Al Pacino about a gay serial killer. They are extremely compelling.

Christopher Kane in one word is 'brilliant'. That's just one word. There are hundreds of others that I'd use. A great collection, a great theme and edginess galore.
