CHRISTOPHER KANE PRE-FALL 2020 COLLECTION
Christopher Kane creates a Pre-Fall collection inspired by his interest in science and nature.
May 13, 2020
The Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 2020 collection is meant to be a stripped-back collection true to his own repertoire of sharp tailoring, flounces, bell skirts, and chain mail.
“Naturotica. It’s a word we came up with when we were designing this is in December,” said Christopher Kane.
Kane, working at home in East London with his partner and Bruce the dog feels no differently, but the fact is that this collection was designed and made before the horror took hold, and now it’s safely delivered to his e-commerce site—with a cameo appearance from Bruce.
The enforced pause has made Kane think even harder about that, while painting and drawing in his non-Zooming hours. “This is a chance to break free,” he thinks. Old formulas of performing to the demands of seasons and markets, of producing shadow collections watered down from previous shows are fast becoming a thing of the past.
