Gwen Stefani may have sung about clearing out Vivienne Westwood in a Galliano gown in 2004, but it’s safe to say in 2013, it is all about Christopher Kane.
If Christopher Bailey and his Burberry brigade are the hottest ticket in town when it comes to LFW (by ‘hot’ we mean Harry Styles and Suki-whatsherface…) then Christopher Kane is his younger, ballsier brother who is about to take the trench right of his back. Having been compared to Gianni Verace by Donatella (who he partnered with for Versus) his beautifully cut designs have enough guts and intrigue to keep the younger fashion pack happy and unconditionally supportive. With the Scot selling 51% of his stake in the brand to luxury holding company Kering, who also represent Stella McCartney, Gucci and Saint Laurent, simply means the world is now officially his pearly oyster
And this is why we love him. For AW13 Kane has single-handedly brought back the camo print in a BIG way. Forget the Destiny’s Child two-piece or All Saints’ combats of synthetic style from the 90’s – banish it from your mind- this time around it is about LUXE. Wear the print with a knitted sweater, a fur jacket and a pair of heels to bring the glam into cam. But if the print still brings back too many awful memories of dancing around your bedroom to the Vengaboys, then simply pick up the khaki hue and blend it in with metallics and denim. It really is the trend of the season. Trust.
