Christopher Kane

Spring – Summer 2014 – Kane, once again has lived up to his rule breaking reputation by using the ever-predictable options of flowers for spring. However this time he has returned to his science textbooks, dissecting and regrouping botanical illustrations. Petals, steams and reproductive diagrams of flowers are incorporated in his SS14 collection, creating sharp graffiti-like graphics and futuristic references. The ultramodern is combined with soft contemporary palettes of lime green, metallic and crisp whites against beiges, blacks and pastel purples.

Teardrop-shaped cutouts resembling a petal are methodically situated around the neckline, for pockets or falling down the body like a wilted flower: such beautiful craftsmanship that brings a space-age element to the flora foundation. The innovative peak, had to be the intergalactic florescent shirts and dresses like spray-painted, sheets of metal fluttering in the catwalk light. Our eyes are kept peeled in awe of what he will conjure next.
