Christopher Kane Fall 2012

Christopher Kane’s Fall 2012 show was the hottest ticket in town yesterday.

The front row packed with both celebrities and editors highlighted just how important the designer is to London Fashion Week.

For Fall, Christopher went goth on a colour palette of black, dark purple, blue and red, opening with grey pinstripe looks.

Aside from a few tapered pants, this collection was mostly made up of knee-length halter, plunging, sleeveless dresses alongside super-cosy turtleneck knits, blazers, furry coats, tees with leather sleeves, pencil skirts and a red knee-length puffer jacket which I love.

Whilst the mood was dark, the details were very exciting.

There were cut-outs, leopard spots, wood-like prints, embroidered flowers, neck-craning floral embroidery, sweaters threaded with wire, which looked like those long red sweets you get at the counter of a newsagent, and leather piping around the neckline, sleeves and hemlines to give everything an edge.

The shoes were chunky as the models walked the runway with barely any makeup and centre-parted hair swept behind their ears.

Front Row: Alexandra Roach, Alexa Chung, Yasmin Le Bon, Laura Bailey, Samantha Cameron, Poppy Delavigne and Caroline Sieber

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rooney Mara, Alexa Chung, Anna Paquin, 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

    Ugh! I want to love it but I don’t. Sadly this collection looks like what’s sold in the local flee market, ultra shiny fabrics with uninteresting prints.
