Runway Rave: Graphing at Christopher Kane
Photo source: Style.com
Christopher Kane is one of my most anticipated shows. His previous seasons showed remarkable use of geometry, which included mostly circles, juxtaposed with animal prints. Having explored circles, he has moved on to lines and curves, and has brought the futuristic trend to a higher level by playing with layers to achieve various metallic sheens and shades. He proved that the futuristic look can be feminine too, as seen in the pleated dresses with ruffle-edge outlines in contrast with the rigid strokes on the sleeves and bustiers. Kane has shown once again that there will never be an exhaustion of ideas inspired by lines and shapes!
