Only Christopher Kane could take pastel broderie anglaise, floral prints and pleated chiffon and make them feel somewhat subersive. Maybe it’s the semi-orthopedic footwear, maybe it’s the minimalist styling, or maybe it’s just that inimitable Kane touch that makes something as classic as lace twinset look utterly original (SS11 anyone?). Whatever the reason, Christopher Kane’s resort collection strikes the perfect balance between so-pretty-it-hurts femininity and cutting edge cool.
The candy colours and saccharine hues that stole our hearts this Summer are given a 2013 make-over by way of sporty touches and boyish cover-ups. With the addition of sculputural silhouettes, clever cut-aways and utility detailing, the vivid florals and candyfloss knits that have so long formed part of our fashion landscape all at once appear fresh and new. If there were any doubt left that multi-award winning designer-of-the-moment Christopher Kane had officially made it, his resort 2013 collection should sort that out pretty soon.
Love Ella. X
