Designer Spotlight: Christopher Kane

By on May 4, 2015

Soon after Christopher Kane graduated from Central Saint Martins’ in London, England he became an elite designer. Christopher Kane’s eponymous brand has been gaining momentum since its debut in 2006. As an award-winning designer, Kane is known to be ostentatious, but then again I guess brilliance begets a certain amount of bragging rights. Just check out that sultry, defiant stare – of course he can pull off the attitude!

The way that Kane plays around with classic silhouettes is what sets him apart from the average luxury designer. Right now in fashion, everything old is new again and Kane is a great example of a designer who takes vintage cuts and revives them. He can make it work and transcend the time barrier.

Take a look at a couple of my personal faves from his 2015 collections.

Sleeveless Abstract Boning Dress

Burgundy in Spring/Summer? Well why not when it’s such an amazingly chic cut! A unique dress like this could transition you into any season. Seriously, the details on this dress could not be any more perfect if they tried.

Satin and Georgette Dress

This dress is one of my personal faves from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The cream is crisp but still soft enough to flatter many different skin tones. The flattering cut just floats away from the body, embodying a beautiful 1940s-esque silhouette.

And now for a pop of colour. This periwinkle blue is great for the warmer weather. It’s so refreshing after a long, drab winter. I can’t wait to find a million ways to incorporate this colour into my summer wardrobe! I’m glad I’m not the only one in love with Kane’s stunning silhouettes, check out Laura Carmichael a.k.a. Lady Edith of Downton Abbey.
