“I wanted a feeling of attraction and sensuality in the collection, something sexual but not grotesque,” the designer said in his show notes.
The sketches that Kane and his team made during life drawing classes in his studio triggered a process in Kane’s brain that led him to confronting the forces of sexual attraction in his Fall Winter 2015/2016 collection, which led him to develop something he called “Lover’s Lace” with entwined figures of male and female bodies embracing, spreading all over the long dresses, skirts and tops.
The shoes on the runway stay in line with his wickedly chic sense of perversity, with distinctive embellishment of ruffles, buckled up safety belts across the upper, tiny anodized metal balls embedded on the pointy toe tips and zipper pull.
Christopher Kane has just opened his first store on Mount Street, in Mayfair, joining fellow designers Nicholas Kirkwood, Roland Mouret and Roksanda Ilincic. “To have our own retail space gives us the chance to showcase our collections and to really express our vision. To open in London first was really important to us as this is where our label was born.” said Christopher Kane, creative director, and his sister Tammy, deputy creative director of the brand.
