Floral Work. Christopher Kane AW17


Florals aren’t ‘ground-breaking’ for spring, that’s for sure – but for winter, indeed, they are. London-based designers are in the full bloom this season, from Erdem to Pringle of Scotland. Christopher Kane is also a sucker for flora, which is impossible not to spot in his latest collection. Whether in form of traditional damask coming from Gainsborough Silks (rather used for haute-tapestry, than in coats and skirts) or meticulously embellished 3-D flowers sticking out off the dresses, Kane’s girl will bring brightness to the room. But the collection wasn’t only about florals. There was this cosmic element in it, whether we’re talking of space-ship prints, futuristic handbags or fluorescent knit. Christopher Kane’s collections always feel like a collage, but in motion. Some elements appear out of nowhere, like the genius sponge-stripped heels or romantic white lace.


Would love to hear what you think!
