#LFW Illustrated Highlights – Christopher Kane

Christopher Kane‘s AW12 show was to me a bit like a dark extension to his SS12 one. More floral motifs, more beading and embellishments, moiré instead of brocade and a palette going from blood red to bruised lips purple to black. 

Almost like the teenager from last season had grown up and took a turn for the worse. He quotes as his inspiration William Friedkin’s “Cruising“, a thriller from 1980 where a cop goes undercover in the gay sex scene to try and catch a serial killer. Mixing serial dismemberments and pretty dresses? Do it again Christopher Kane.
