Cutting edge Scottish designer Christopher Kane is thinking about launching a line of luxury leather shoes and handbags now that he has financial backing under his belt. Kering, formally known as PPR, is a fashion investment company heading by François Henri Pinault (Salma Hayek's sweetie) that is pronounced "caring", as the company's mission is to nurture its brands and shareholders. He told WWD, "I'd love to see a Christopher Kane bag, a staple bag that could carry on for five years, 10 years. We have a rich archive of leathers and fabrics that could easily fall into a bag category."
We sure would love to see one too! Kane has done a previous line of accessories, but nothing quite this major. Since Kering also backs Stella McCartney, Gucci and Alexander McQueen, he's hoping they can help guide him and his sister Tammy, who happens to be Creative Director of the brand, into this luxe world of leather must-haves. Would you be on board to buy a Christopher Kane bag?
