Christopher Kane’s FW18 collection is a fusion of intricate lace and beading, as well as elegant velvet with an edge. Kane, a designer who continues to evolve his already established aesthetic each season, further fuels his narrative with a collection that embraces the power of the ultimate party dress. 

The strength of this collection is displayed most in Kane’s dresses. Mixed materials, varietal lengths, and poised styling and silhouettes compliment each complex garment and their multifaceted qualities. His incorporation and execution of sheer lace dresses read appropriately chic and have an easy eye-catching feast of detail. A pair of sister party dresses, sectioned off in cadences of fabric and connected with saturated beading, end the collection with an obvious show-stopping quality to them. Other moments include tops and dresses emblazoned with terms like ‘Special’, ‘More Joy’, and ‘Sex’, as well as structural topcoats and a refreshing appearance of crushed velvet.

Christopher Kane continues to design with a keen eye that, yes, focuses on detail, but succeeds most in his ability to bring a collection to full fruition. It’s as if Kane chooses to collaborate with the narratives of his previous collections, stimulating his present work to continue to move forward as a designer. A nostalgically noble sentiment that indeed makes Christopher Kane one of a kind.
