Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane Women Autumn-Winter 2015 - Whether it was the smoke, smooth velvets or naked silhouettes, Christopher Kane’s Tate Modern exhibition was incredibly seductive.

Channelling the emerging futuristic Eighties trend, Kane kickstarted his show with bold black suits and elongated blazer jackets that demonstrated an eye for strict masculine tailoring although the presence of electric red and blue velvet trims ensured that this line of formal wear was both ladylike and feminine. The use of blue velvet also led to the development of a luxe blue suit that’s confident colour and streamline structure proved to be one of the collection’s standouts. Although such suits proved mannish tailoring can be empowering, following looks focused on femininity with velvet red skirts, silk blouses and bandage dresses.

The real beauty and genius however lay with his use of naked silhouettes. Encouraged by an interest in still life drawing, topless female silhouettes featured on the sides of skirts and velvet dresses whilst the real show-stoppers came when images of bodies entwining and embracing were silhouetted in lace.

As the designer closed his show with the hit track by Bananarama, Kane can leave feeling confident this is definitely a collection that leaves us wanting ‘More More More.’
