Christopher Kane SS13 at London Fashion Week
Day 4 of London Fashion Week, and yesterday lunchtime saw one of the most high profile designers on schedule take to the spotlight to present his Spring / Summer 2013 offering. Last season, we saw his purple reign influence Autumn / Winter 2012 collections at every level, was his new season offering set to do the same? Keep reading to find out what the Scottish designer came up with.
The Central Saint Martins graduate is known for his attention to detail in the form of embellishment which tends to really step outside of the fashion box, pushing boundaries in a forward thinking, yet somewhat sinister, way. The show set up, quite nicely portrayed this, rebuffing all the fashion week front row nonsense, with a super long catwalk (holographic no less) with only one singe row.
Beginning on white (like so many of the Spring / Summer 2013 collections this London Fashion Week), focus lay quite clearly on texture and shape, with zips, cut outs, tailoring and detail. Moving on to powder pinks and neon yellows, in super simple and minimalist shapes, there was a focus on origami style fold-over texture. Then came the detail; ruffled modern textures made an interesting highlight alongside embellished lace and sheer organzas. Stand outs for me included the perspex style ruffles in pastel shades and ultra modern embellishments.
