Christopher Kane’s Petal Power – For his spring 2014 collection, Scottish designer Christopher Kane found his inspiration in flowers and more specifically, petals. Opening with a section of dresses and sweaters adorned with metallic outlined, tear-drop shaped cutouts; it was clear that Kane was looking towards the future in the form of streamlined silhouettes and shiny fabrics. As the show progressed, the floral influence took a literal turn with sweaters and dresses that read “FLOWER” or “PETAL” in all cap lettering. The botanical motif also made an appearance on pantsuits and dresses in the form of crystal pendants scattered across the silhouette. Kane also offered more pared down looks such as draped dresses in twenties shapes or jacket and skirt combinations.
