Christopher Kane Fall 2014–Shown during London Fashion Week, the fall-winter 2014 collection from Christopher Kane marked the launch of his first handbag line. The leather accessories range from sleek and miniature to large carryalls with some even featuring bright neon clasps. When it comes to his collections, Kane seems to be never short of ideas and fall is no exception. From mannish tailoring in the form of slouchy suiting to nylon dresses trimmed with fur to sculptural sleeves which wind around the woman’s arm like a serpent, there is no shortage of creativity here. His finale looks of voluminous organza dresses are also a sight to see. The fabric is layered as asymmetric folds that at once have a structured and undone look.
Kate in Christopher Kane – Hot of the heels of her recent Topshop collaboration, actress Kate Bosworth attended the New York premiere of her film “Big Sur” on October 28th. The blonde beauty opted for a simple yet elegant look with a dress from Christopher Kane’s spring 2014 collection. Kate paired the look with Casadei “Softymetal” pumps and jewelry from Ana Khouri.
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.
Rose in Christopher Kane – Actress Rose Byrne attended the Los Angeles premiere of “Blue Jasmine”, held on July 24th, 2013. The Australian beauty wore a white dress with zig-zag cutouts from Christopher Kane’s resort 2014. The brunette paired to look with a purple clutch and silver shoes.

Kane’s Darkly Beautiful Fall – Christopher Kane seemed to be in a dark mood for his fall 2012 collection presented on Monday during London Fashion Week. Opening with pinstripe dresses in black and white, it set the tone for a gloomy color palette of plum, burgundy, royal blue and black. A certain change from spring’s neon hues, a dark scheme did not necessarily mean that the collection was missing exciting details with deep necklines, leopard spots, innovative textiles and eastern inspired prints. For warmer pieces, Kane looked towards heavy knitted sweaters, knee-length coats and furry jackets.
Kane’s 60s Spring – Christopher Kane caught on to this season’s trend of sixties revival for his spring 2012 show presented during London Fashion Week. A collection inspired by childhood and youth, models walked down the runway in iridescent fabrics featuring floral patterns and structured shapes. Highlights included crystal embellished tops, chic cut-outs and sheer coats with grungy prints.
Christopher Kane was inspired by lollipops and pencil cases from his boyhood days for the fall 2011 collection from his eponymous label. Featuring crocheted pieces with geometric patterns, plastic accents for a water-like affect and neon hues, models took to the runway in shimmering and sheer dresses for a new kind of minimal from the Scottish designer.
The spring offering from Christopher Kane delivers a bright color palette of neon green, orange and pink inspired by Britain’s Princess Margaret. Undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated shows from London Fashion Week, the presentation featured top models such as Jessica Stam and Karolina Kurkova. Despite its classic silhouettes, the Scottish designer presented a revamped version on forties staples with the addition of leather, piping and psychedelic prints.
