Christopher Kane unveiled his first full collection of leather goods at his Fall 2014 runway show in London. There are eight new styles, made in Italy from materials including calfskin, alligator, and python. The bags feature Kane’s double “safety buckle” fastening, a detail that appeared in his first collection in 2007. Kane’s pencil case clutch, which has been sold before, is also part of the collection.
Kane said it was important that his first leather goods line “reflect where the Christopher Kane collections began. The safety buckle is a motif from that 2007 collection, and is something I like to return to, as are the oversized, plastic zips.”
Signature details on the bags include hand-stitched elastics; oversized plastic zips inset into exotic materials; and baseball stitching on shoulder straps. The color palette features black, pink, gray and chocolate brown.
