My love affair with this man is set to continue after Kane showed his Autumn/Winter collection today. I jumped up and down with glee when i saw it. In theory leather, florals & lace would be an interesting combination to say the least. But somehow it just worked. You could tell it was a Christopher Kane collection, but it wasn't predictable, nor was it boring. He continued with that quirky, feminine aesthetic we all know him for but transformed it - once again - into a collection people will fall in love with.
Looks at Berardi's collection exuded power and sex appeal, with the designer presenting us with his famous mini dresses - in moulded shapes and also longer gowns in draped designs - both equally as glamorous. The overall collection was black and white with a shot of burgundy red right at the end to close the show.
This woman can do no wrong in my eyes! I once again adored Roksanda Ilincic's collection, which was slightly more clean cut than her previous ones. The big 70s curls, sophisticated dresses in jeweled tones of blue, raspberry, black, contrasted with nude tones made this collection work so brilliantly. It was elegant, glamorous and had real presence amongst the shows yesterday.
Erdem's collection is without a doubt one of my favourites so far. His floral, butterfly, digitalised prints incorporated in silk, lace and ruffles - all of my favourite things! His shows are always so so beautiful, and feminine. Every year Erdem out does himself, and continues with his unique aesthetic, always managing to evolve his work into something even more beautiful than before.
