Always intriguing, Christopher Kane played with the constructs of masculinity and femininity for S/S 10. Beginning with a menswear tailored suit, he gradually moved away from androgyny and into ultra-feminine lingerie-inspired pieces. The vest of the three-piece suit landed on a checked sheath with sexy slits on both legs. These simple gingham checks were used throughout the collection, at first in muted neutrals and then moving into pale pink and baby blue. Prim collared shirts were buttoned up to the neck, in complete opposition to see-through bodices with gingham bra-shaped appliqués. The collection ended in diaphanous pastel-tinted layers, each sheer panel embroidered with beaded white roses, which are sure to be as influential as his giant paillettes were last spring.
