Christopher Kane Spring 2012

Christopher Kane’s Spring 2012 collection continued the 60s revival we have witnessed this Fashion fortnight.

Boxy jackets, sweet shift dresses, tailored shorts, midi-skirts, cigarette pants, house coats and mini-skirts were presented, but the real story was the floral prints.

We saw sky-blue floral brocade prints, multi-coloured floral prints and iridescent floral prints.

The red-carpet-ready looks included a collection of crystal-embellished dresses.

Crystals also appeared on tops, shorts and jeans. I expect to see these worn by the editors next season.

The models would’ve been relieved to wear poolside rubber-soled sandals and sporty plimsolls; some were even decorated with crystals.

Anthony Turner gave the models purposely messy updos, whilst Chantecaille applied the right amount of blusher to give each of them a rosy glow.

Front Row: Kanye West (who I was seated behind), Erin O’Connor, Anna Wintour, Jade Parfitt, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Eliza Doolittle, and Samantha Cameron

Favourites: Sky blue floral skirt and white top and satin dress with crystal embellishements

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Alexa Chung, Anna Paquin, Leighton Meester, Kate Bosworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Emily Browning, Andrea Riseborough, Freida Pinto, Chloe Moretz, Olivia Palermo, Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Jessica Alba, Ashley Olsen, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Yasmin Le Bon and Saoirse Ronan

      He declined all interviews and would only let people take a picture from the side.

      He only spoke to Hilary Alexander and Suzy Menkes.

    I’m kinda disappointed. I know that Christopher can do better.
