Christopher Kane exhibits Tokyo’s dark side as the theme for the racy Cruise collection

Glitter against gloom, the Christopher Kane Resort 2019 collection featured graphic strips of crystal, slithery chain mail, lace trimmings and tailored black leather.

“We shot it while we were on a research trip in Tokyo. I thought it would be a nice surprise,” he says. “And I loved that cityscape.”

Kane designed this collection walks that nighttime aesthetic between the sexy and the sophisticated on which every girl hopes to find her balance.

The designer is inspired by the power of sexuality as an underlying force in fashion with the opportunity to provoke with short lengths he’s been doing since he started, bra tops, fetishistic buckled choker collars, and rouleau black leather bows.
