Christopher Kane Spring 2013

Considering there were so many ladylike pieces on display, I was surprised that Christopher Kane sought Frankenstein as inspiration for his Spring 2013 collection.

Pretty pink, yellow, white dresses, cardigans, skirt suits and jackets took to the v-shaped mirrored runway on Monday afternoon.

The twist was several of these pieces were accented with plastic nuts and bolts or electrical tape for a typically surprising twist which will delight the likes of Alexa Chung and Leigh Lezark, but for Christopher’s newest fan, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, there were über feminine pretty bow accents.

For those seeking something a lot tougher, Kane sent out models in floral-embossed biker jackets and for the daring the sheer dresses are sure to tantalise.

While there were no gowns, there were plenty of red carpet options. I see the fringed dress making an appearance on the red carpet along with several other pieces including the embellished finale pieces.

Models hair was slicked back into a high ponytail sporty a pale face with dark lower lid eye makeup.

Front Row: Alexa Chung, Leigh Lezark, Daisy Lowe, Poppy Delevingne

Favourites: White pants suit and bow-print chiffon dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Rooney Mara, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, 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

    Hey FC – I was lucky enough to be invited to the Christopher Kane show. I was like an excited schoolboy when I saw you (looking uber chic in black and no trace of jet lag!). Even managed to share the lift with yourself and Simon Doonan but failed to spark up the courage to say I was a big fan! Hope you enjoyed the show! X

    • Fashion Critic

      It was a great show.

      why are you lying….??? 😀 I was totally jet lagged hence hiding being the all black.

      I love Simon too…but don’t have the courage to speak to him either xx

  • Yeliz

    Hey FC, you’re going to be posting your looks from London Fashion week, right? 🙂 Pretty please?

    • Fashion Critic

      I only do that for New York…in London I’m too jet lagged to make the effort sadly.

      • EmmaWoodhouse

        🙁 Oh, Ok. I totally understand, but I miss them! Have a lovely time at LFW! 🙂

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    I will love the bow print dress if someone lines the skirt. 🙂
