The Christopher Kane Resort 2020 collection is a mix between chic and suggestiveness, naming this particular collection “Technosexual,” and shot in an aircraft hangar in Suffolk.
Since Spring 2018, when Kane made his collection about the suburban bordello run by Cynthia Payne, the apparently infinite variables of fetishism have become a fascination running through the seasons. This time, it’s “people who have sex with robots” and—rather bogglingly—with hand-tools. “You can look it all up on the internet,” he offered, cheerfully.
Some of this comes out in slogan sweatshirts, and a lot is channeled into the Kane logo sub-brand product that is stamped with the words More Joy, Sex, and Special and is all over Instagram.
The aircraft hangar is the backdrop for a capsule of Kane’s holiday party dresses. More of the variations on sparkle, which moves to epaulettes on sweaters and then an entire dress. His pleated lamé skirts and dresses. And a particularly slinky black chainmail camisole dress, edged in chantilly lace allowing for lust and fashion to walk hand in hand.
