Christopher Kane Autumn / Winter 2013

“The brain works in mysterious ways” and with that said, Christoper Kane made his unusual source of inspiration this season appear somewhat more reasonable, easier to process. Seen otherwise, building a collection as inspired by the pulse sequence of an MRI brain scan is an action worthy of a modern-day Dr. Frankenstein. But than again, Kane was never shy of showcasing his fascination towards the strange character. Back to the fall / winter 2013 collection, it’s only safe to say that the runway exploded with ideas, all strong, modern and appealing, resonating with Kane’s signature aesthetic.

A warrior quality seemed to best define the array of power coats and sleek, A-line skirts featuring camouflage prints in various hues and textures that were perceived as a sophisticated update on the cool, edgy staple. Complemented by fur accents, the tough-luxe pieces were quickly followed by a selection of equally strong garments imagined as velvet cutout dresses, sheer minis carrying large-scale flower motif embroideries, a t-shirt, a sweater and a sexy dress emblazoned with a brain image and more of Christopher Kane’s exquisite nonchalance. The evening-wear came bearing intricately adorned gowns, covered in hundreds of shiny appliques, creating patterns that felt unique, sensual and pertinent.
