Christopher Kane Fall Winter 2012

I loved Christopher Kane’s early work, the neon body conscious dresses that felt fresh, new, and exciting. But then his signature seemed to get blurry, and to be honest, I don’t know what this guy is supposed to be about anymore. Ever since I saw those hideous FW11 swirly plastic envelope bags at The Room for $900, I thought, this guy has lost his touch. Thankfully, this collection saved him, a bit. There are still tons of the weird, cheap looking experimental fabrics he liked to use in dresses, but there are also some edgy pieces that are both wearable and slick. Which leaves me even more confused as to what this guy is about, and why he is getting so much hype.

I love…

that Kane has gone a bit rock'n'roll for this season.

a lovely floral dress. But are we suddenly at Erdem's show?

I loathe…

that Kane's fabrics often look a bit cheap and tacky.
