For the Spring 2016 collection, designer Christopher Kane deconstructed the rainbow for a texture clashing show that was otherwise inspired by John Chamberlain’s reclaimed sculptures made from twisted and welded automobile parts.
These fractured shapes were also accompanied by flashes from Kane’s past including rippled cut-outs, neon lace and plenty of python. Entirely new to the mix were plastic ‘restraint’ ties, illustrative cave man doodles and abstract fringing that morphed out of modern art arrangements cum dresses.
His hyper colour finale dresses were awash with jutting colored panels and hyper hued tassels. The Scot’s bags, an addition to the accessories line for Christopher Kane, were shown in Technicolor, as were his clothes, combining python and transparent plastic into shoulder-slung messenger styles and clutches.
