Move over Calvin. Though we've loved you season after season, we've applauded your overstated minimalism and we still "wouldn't be caught without our Calvin's", there's a new CK in town.
This CK doesn't need a young Brook Shields giving us the low-down on denim, nor does this CK deliver flat and monolithic pallets year after year. This CK has been dishing up some of the most appetising collections of late, and he assures us we ain't seen nothin' yet.
I introduce to you Christopher Kane, though I'm sure you don't require any formalities. Always delivering extreme aesthetics between each season, from prehistoric scalloping in bubblegum hues to his take on nude way back in 2007 for his Central Saint Martins graduate collection, Kane ensures his audience will never be bored.
The moment the first apocalyptic print mini dress hit style.com for this season's Resort collection, Kane was making the seemingly unfashionable, fashionable. When you mix mushroom clouds with cut-out bodycon dressing, you get fashionable war. Far from the combat boots and military shoulders that have been stomping down the catwalks this season, Kane delivered a highly covetable collection of digital sky-scape prints, leather, cropped blouses, soft dresses, bodycon silhouettes, oversized tee's and the standard chunky heel (also swathed in print inspired by 60s nuclear bomb testing).
Reminiscent of both Josh Goot and Friederich Gray's affinity with hypercolour print and Rodarte's penchant for colour combination, it seems Kane has come up trumps combining these elements to present this dark and picturesque collection.
Check it out for yourself; it's sure to blow you away - literally.
