Christopher Kane Fall 2011 Takes Us Back to School with Pencil Cases and Geometry

christopher kane finale Christopher Kane Fall 2011 Takes Us Back to School with Pencil Cases and Geometry

As a recent winner of the 2011 BFC/Vogue Fashion Award, Christopher Kane showcased his most minimalist collection to date for his Fall 2011 Ready-To-Wear line. Beginning with geometric patterned crochet pencil skirts and fitted sweaters, all done in muddy greens and browns, turquoises and grays, Kane showed off a penchant for sharply tailored separates and sophisticated attire. Kane smartly paired off his knits with leather printed jackets, skirts and pants, thereby creating a sexy combination of wearable pieces. Shortly after, he surprised us by adding strips of liquid plastic on the edges of backless dresses, hems of skirts, and pockets.

Backstage, Kane had forwarned his guest that  “This will be known as the ‘liquid collection’. It was inspired by the pencil cases I had at school and lollipops. But we didn’t want it to be over elaborate-we wanted it to be about really wearable, sophisticated clothes.”

Never one to exaggerate, Kane kept his promise, as liquid took over in the form of green and blue or red and pink.  Creating futuristic accents on intricate necklines, peter pan collars, and even taking a main role on a couple of frocks, the lava looking liquid showed off a progressive style that is reflective of Kane’s evolution as a designer. Always looking to showcase new ideas and push fashion boundaries, Kane managed to keep his looks from going into busy-mode by using a black crepe fabric and clean shapes. I particularly like how he combined fun through the use of a gelly-filled plastic with sexier accents such as black netting and midriff baring frocks with missing panels.  

And just when I thought Kane’s liquid collection stopped at accents, a whole slew of iridescent sequins took over. And while there was enough sparkle to make Lady Gaga proud, the shimmering seperates were streamlined and done in simple sihouettes.

As for garnering celebrity attention, Christopher Kane proved he’s still got it as his show filled up with the likes of  Samantha Cameron, Anna Wintour, Alexa Chung, Daphne Guinness, Daisy Lowe, Jo Wood, Natalie Massenet, Glenda Bailey, Derek Blasberg, Franca Sozzani and Emmanuelle Alt.

Christopher Kane Resort 2011

00080m1 200x300 Christopher Kane Resort 2011For Resort 2011, Christopher Kane was inspired by outerspace which is fitting, since his designs always have an other-worldly quality. He often chooses a print for each season and runs with it (for Fall 2010 florals were the focus), though this season it is more appropriate to say fly, as the pieces resemble space-age voyages all done in style.

Like last season, Kane experiments with leather which is an interesting choice for Resort, but the femininity and flirtatiousness of the collection are not lost. Leather appears on sleeves, jackets, and perfectly tailored high-waisted shorts and wide-leg trousers. Kane has the brilliant ability of mixing hard and soft, which few designers get right.

And the shoes are not to be forgotten: platform Zanottis trimmed with maribou fur. Another contrast to the pieces, but somehow making a perfect and quirky fit.

Visit www.net-a-porter.com to purchase pieces from Kane’s latest collection. More looks below.
