Christopher Kane

  1. Designers do ‘the ugly shoe’

    The warning signs have been here for a while thanks to those east-London ‘early-adopters’, and it’s definitely made a headline or two among fashion press, but who can believe that this spring’s flat footwear of choice is set to be the aptly named, ugly sandal? I do understand the attraction of course! Comfort footwear needs… More

  2. How to stand out in camouflage (yes really)

    Christopher Kane’s collections are always a highlight of London Fashion Week for us and for this season he’s given us a new take on camouflage – a pattern that has for too long reminded us of unflattering cargo pants and Scary Spice.  Of course Rihanna has rocked the print but seeing as it’s winter and cropped tops… More

  3. LFW: Christopher Kane turns biologist/florist and there’s shininess

    Every season Christopher Kane’s collections are among the most innovative without resorting to gimmicks and SS14 is no different. The designer drew inspiration from biology textbooks with annotated scientific drawings of buttercups, orchids and carnations to put a totally fresh spin on spring florals. The suggestive diagrams appeared on pleated skirts, embroidered luxe sweatshirts (the… More

  4. Stars who can Cannes

    So it’s that time of year again – the Cannes Film Festival is in town … well, Cannes to be specific. There have been so many red carpet moments, but how about we pick our favourite some more casual-ish looks for a change? Casual might be over-stating it a little … after all there are… More

  7. FNO: Snap Fashion style

    We are recovering from Fashion Night Out and what a night it was. We were lucky to be invited to Vogue and Mulberry’s amazing private party and yes there were celebs, designers, delicious cocktails, cute crowns and a chance to see the new AW12 collection, including the luscious Lana bag. I was completely star struck… More

  8. Fearne Cotton goes Geisha for Very

    Fearne Cotton has jumped on the oriental bandwagon for her latest Very clothing collection. We saw oriental-styled details all over the AW12 catwalks, perhaps most notably at Proenza Schouler, while Christopher Kane’s cool minimalist aesthetic was our favourite. But Fearne’s take on the trend is bolder and brighter. While the presenter’s personal sense of style… More

  9. Christopher Kane vs Topshop

    Hello London – summer is here at last! Make the most of it while you can with this hot floral dress from Topshop – a kind of lovechild of a couple of designs from Christopher Kane’s SS12 collection. We’re obsessed with cute origami details and all things floral. More
