Geometric shapes and symmetry is everything in the Christopher Kane fall collection, as the shapes help give a styling outlet to the ‘geek’ panache. Providing garments that can both easily fit into to street style and work brackets.
“I love detail, especially some sort of embellishment that can transform a garment instantly. It’s always good to move out of your comfort zone each season, to learn new things and to challenge your senses.” – Christopher Kane
Kane uses geometry to transform other wise boring outfits into fun and challenging ensembles. Challenging in the sense that the mind has to work hard to register the structure of the shapes created.
All of the Christopher Kane’s trousers for this collection are cut to sit just above the ankle to help illuminate his theme of preppy stylish bookworm. It is this attention to detail that makes Kane’s collection so successful, destroying all previous conceptions of the ‘geek’.
