Christopher Kane has 13 years behind him – part of the dynamic London fashion era that began around the millennium. This was the first show since the British designer completely separated from the Kering luxury group, which had previously been his support.
Jonathan Anderson is in the opposite position, working with the LVMH luxury group for Loewe, the Spanish brand to which he has brought his stylish fashion and his interest in art. That success feeds his own brand that included artefacts that appeared as art objects at his show.
Together, the two designers offer, out of London, a fresh take on 21st-century fashion.
Christopher Kane’s Winning Ways
“More joy” read the T-shirt that Christopher Kane wore for his show. If I had not known that the notice was linked to the “Joy of Sex” subject of last season, I might have thought it was all about the merry flowers that appeared on digital boards on the walls of the venue – and on many of the clothes.
