REVIEW: CHRISTOPHER KANE FALL WINTER 2018

Posted on by Cameron Tewson

When everyone’s sensitive towards the topic, fashion’s daring-darling, Christopher Kane says it out loud: let’s talk about sex. 

“I’ve always been obsessed with human behaviour and sex — whether that’s the biology of it, or the actual physical act of it. I based this collection on the joy of sex, but I did it in a beautiful, provocative, sensual way”  

The autumn-winter 2018 collection, similarly to the last season’s domestic kinkiness theme, enters the fields of sensuality like no other. The Joy of Sex, the 1972 illustrated guide of sexual positions and techniques by Alex Comfort, was the starting point for Kane. Some of the most expressive illustrations coming from the original version of the book appeared on the dresses, while mottos – ‘More Joy’, for instance – appeared on black knits and sweatshirts.

The collection holds even more of ‘those’ moments, just slightly more subtly. Black leather was used for the coats and mini-skirts with lace inserts. Paneled, zippered dresses let for displaying or concealing different parts of the body – can be worn during the day and the night, how practical! Of course, Kane has in offer some less daring pieces, like chic suites or embellished Swarovski crystal midi-skirts. Still, the ‘provocative’ pieces are the strongest points of Christopher’s eroticism-in-fashion conversation.

Fashion is the sex, sex is the fashion.
