Two of my favorite shows so far: Christopher Kane and Jeremy Laing. The complete opposite of one another, but both devastatingly cool and totally wearable. What I love about Christopher Kane is his ability to completely transform each collection he brings forth, each with an entirely different aesthetic but still keeping with that unique and artful spin he puts on nearly every garment – most specifically his dresses. His fall collection was the epitome of relaxed dressing, but with a touch of menswear and some geometry-inspired frills. I love the idea of wearing a luxurious, delicate dress that is ultra-feminine and pairing it with lace-up oxfords. Kane mastered this brilliantly. Baggy sweaters worn loosely over fitted skirts were breathtaking, and I especially loved the combination of textures in the clothes and the shoes (velvet!) – this collection is for all the girls who appreciate “cool” without giving a damn of how put together they look.
Jeremy Laing’s collection didn’t get rave reviews, but in my opinion it was totally next level Laing. Buttoned-to-the-neck shirts looked androgynous but were offset by high-waisted pants that fit like a glove. It was futuristic yet completely modern and the funnel-neck cape layered over an asymmetrical print dress and sheer leggings was one of my favorite looks. This collection was designed for the foward-thinking woman who isn’t afraid to take risks.
