Christopher Kane – SS19
Christopher Kane’s sexed up animal kingdom. “Life is nasty, brutish…and very fucking beautiful.”
Yesterday at London’s Tate Modern Christopher Kane presented an incredible, indelible, and rather sexual SS19 range. Amidst towering circular silos under the Blavatnik Building (the old Bankside Power Station), the designer regaled critics, buyers and goofy bloggers with a collection crackling with dark symbolism, insect hanky-panky, and references to Thanatos (the personification of death in Greek mythology). In short, it was sexual hedonism, beastiality (beast on beast, that is) and death all wrapped into one. Whoa.
There were silk-screen shirts and dresses emblazoned with ‘Sexual Cannibalism’ font and images of praying mantises being carnal; there were kinky-glam garments hugging super sexy silhouettes (Hannah Motler is everything!); and there were amazing asymmetric pieces embellished with jems and jewels that came in gorgeous emerald green, crazy iridescent colors and blood red sweaters with a lingerie-like strap. We loved Liu Chunjie wearing that lace body armor look and Anniek Verfaille made us swoon sporting that bug-boinking print wrap around. Christopher Kane killed it!
