Autumn Winter 2017

“We wanted to express a tougher femininity this season,” says Christopher Kane. “I was looking at abstract shapes, hard angles and sharp jags, as well as uniforms and utility: I love the idea of the female factory worker. At the same time, we wanted to work with historical fabrics and contrast them with these tough silhouettes; heavy silk damasks and taffetas together with overalls and Velcro attachments. It’s about the people who made these fabrics as much as the fabrics themselves, the extreme industrial line combined with history and femininity. I often think of the laboratory and the lab worker in what I do, in Crocs and lab coats. And then I think about the white coats of the couture atelier, those women who are steeped in craft and work. In the end, they are not a million miles away from each other.”
