For the Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 2016 collection, the designer showcased his perpetual fascination by science with elegant line-up full of classic silhouettes with a mix of pattern, print and texture.
This year’s transitional collection includes high-spirited and artsy elements, featuring floral prints, geometric shapes, hodgepodge revile, origami folds and eminent leather details.
Printed lace skirts glowed with strips of orange or green neon tape; a car crash image recurred on pieces including sweatshirts; a tweed boucle suit had unfinished, stringy edges; and a long and luxe reversible sheepskin coat featured a smooth leather lining spray-painted with silver flowers. Kane embellished with molecular details, using neon dots on a pleated silk skirt and little crystals to update a classic gray cashmere sweater. Black sequin roses, meanwhile, blossomed across a cashmere wool coat and dress.
Kane offers a variety of accessories with paint splattered Perspex jewelry, shoes with soles with the illusion of melting and dripping neon wax, and gloves with flashes of neon tape or bright candy dot patterns giving a pop and vibrancy to sleek silhouettes and perfectly tailored pieces.
