LADIES OF THE NIGHT
London: Like many British designers this season, things went decidedly dark for Christopher Kane. Gone were the spunky neons, lace and elegant origami brocade and in place, Kane showed a characteristically tongue-in-cheek take on the modern day bad girl vamp full of leather, cutouts and blackened animal prints. The color story was simultaneously restrained and statement-making, with a bright candy apple red emerging in lineup of inky black, and dark amethyst. From the smart cutout dresses to a very chic long puffer and a cleverly constructed wire woven sweater, Kane is sure to please his legion of fashion forward fans. —Shannon Davenport
