Christopher Kane Spring 2014 #LFW

"He stands alone. There is simply no one else whose postshow rationale could run a gamut from peekaboo cutouts based on "sterilized petals" (his words), to the equivalence of the female anatomy to a flower, to inspiration derived from the process of photosynthesis, to the inadequacy of high school sex education. All of those elements were present in the collection Christopher Kane showed today, but, as fearsomely academic as at least some of them sound, the overriding impression was enchantment. It was a joy to see Kane take a sweatshirt and satin skirt—gorge grunge—and make the outfit quizzical by slicing out one shoulder and trimming it with the same crocodile clips he used to pin back skirts like he was dissecting them. Same thing when he applied those sterilized petals (they looked like metal teardrops) to a long, mint green tank dress. So much exposure, so little revelation. Genius." -
