Kinky Things. Christopher Kane AW19

Christopher Kane loves the topic of sex in fashion. If you think of some of his previous seasons’ sex-related hits – like the lace, C-string details or the illustrations from ‘Joy of Sex’ book placed all over the dresses – it’s clear that Kane understands sexuality quite differently than majority of other designers. It’s nothing shallow or obvious, that’s for sure. The autumn-winter 2019 collection was about kinky fetishes, of all sorts. Latex, chainmail elements, leather, lace, even fantasies on food and balloons (conveyed in cheeky prints), were intriguingly incorporated into brilliant garments, like a lady-like coat or an evening gown. The fluid-filled plastic details, that appeared on Kane’s runway a couple of years ago, had something slinky about them, but they were far from tacky. However, if you’re not crazy for kink, feel free to pull the theme apart, and here we are with a collection filled with gorgeous daywear (see the cardigans, knee-length skirts and shirting) and equally good eveningwear. But then… why not go a bit down the risky path?
