As to be expected from Christopher Kane, he wowed audiences as usual with his ‘girls from the council estate’ inspired collection. Moving on from his AW11 collection of minimalist structures paired with an eccentric neon spectrum Kane has matured this collection into luscious sky blue florals and enchanting pastel palettes that create a certain majestic aura that encapsulates the audience initially.
Structured shaping and pieces tailored to perfection came effortlessly down the run way by the way of dresses in cool grey cotton, mixed with delicate leathers, sharp cigarette pants, along with tailored shorts and sixties inspired mini skirts, teamed with neat box jackets to create a cool but classic look. Moving on from last season’s body-con Kane brought us high-necked maxis that floated so effortlessly down the runway, a twist added with slashes from the collar bone to just above the bra line. These were mixed in amongst demure preppy cricket vests over casual, yet still sophisticated shorts.
This season it is quite clearly the time to be cheerful as the dynamic duo Meadham Kirchhoff have proven once again. Cascades of pale blue and pink balloons bobbed across the floor of the runway in unison with silky pink slips, dolly birds and matching tights all managing to gather themselves to expose subtle neon straps in the process.
