Christopher Kane Is the Cable Guy For Spring 2016
Models sported an unexpected accessory at the Christopher Kane Spring 2016 show, and you can pick it up at your local DIY store. Cable ties in bright colours were used not only as hair accessories and chokers but also to gather dresses at the hips and neckline. The idea was to play on the concept of taking things apart and putting them back together, and you could see this all over, in haphazardly patched-up asymmetric silk dresses, curvy hemmed taffeta that criss-crossed in layers, and geometric shapes running down the necklines of slim slip dresses. Kane also brought back the neon lace from his graduate collection, this time on long jackets and knee-length shifts, rather than the fitted dresses of old. There was plenty for fans to love but also a lot that would take guts to wear. No doubt with a little postshow watering down, they will fly off the shelves as usual.
