LFW A/W '11 - Christopher Kane

Ever wondered what inspires a designer? One of my favourite quotes ever is from Paul Smith, ''You can find inspiration in Everything''. And that is certainly the case with Christopher Kane's latest collection, which was apparently inspired by his plastic school pencil case and be known as 'the liquid collection'. Slithers of moulded plastic trickled across necklines, hems and pockets of a series of well cut black dresses. Dresses with plunging necklines and cut out panels. Crochet was also key, seen on neat little pencil skirts and slim fitting dresses, with yet more examples of the wonderful printed leather technique we saw in his S/S' 11 collection. Shimmering sequins gave an other worldly feel to the closing of the show, which was once again innovative and original from start to finish.
