"Christopher Kane the new designer on the block, created the exclusive pink Swarovski crystal necklace for his Spring/Summer ‘07 show at London Fashion Week. Being the consultant on the couture and accessories collection for Donatella Versace, Christopher is the new generation design sensation, with a celebrity following already, the very stylish Kylie as a fan. Kane, a precocious 26-year-old talent from Motherwell, Scotland, creates sexy, structured clothes whose technical skill belie his early years. His graduate collection from St Martins last season won him the Harrods’ Award for design and a job as a consultant to Donatella Versace in Milan; today’s runway debut confirms him as a great new talent. Considering his age, Kane is an outlandishly assured designer. His collection contained no pants, or suits, but his score and a half of naughtily erotic mini dresses packed exceptional punch. Composed of bands of skin-tight horizontal strips, lacerated with lace or nylon chords and finished with punchy brass rings, these are not clothes for the faint of heart. Stretched around the models, cut right up to the crotch, toughened up with chunky belts and made in an acid hues, they screamed for attention.
Suggestive and erotic none of them are an easy wear; but what a stylistic statement all the same."
