Christopher Kane Unveils His First Leather Goods Collection
Christopher Kane's AW14 show marks his first collection of bags
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.
