You may have noticed something different about Christopher Kane’s AW14 show. It was as full of verve and energy as ever, with a million different ideas going down the runway – puffa jackets, relaxed suiting, sculptural dresses and chunky jumpers walking side by side. And each of these was accessorised with a Christopher Kane bag.

This is Christopher’s first full leather goods collection, and what a collection it was. A mishmash of kitsch and luxe saw chunky plastic zips alongside exotic skins, and the designer’s signature safety buckle that first appeared on a body con dress way back in ’07. We particularly love the neon green buckle against a glossy black leather, and the more subtle chocolate browns and pinks and greys.
