As the rows of the audience at the Christopher Kane FW11 show began to fill, you knew that even if the collection were to magically disappoint, the guests alone would have provided plenty of visual entertainment. The room full of people from all walks of fashion (
Anna Wintour, Janice Dickinson, Joe Zee, Jade Parfitt, Alexa Chung, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and more) was quickly silenced when the music dropped its first beat and out came the first girl.
The first few looks were heavily crocheted knee-length skirts, cardigans and tees in shades of blue, green and grey. Following these, Kane introduced pieces trimmed with squiggly pieces of plastic filled with multicolored liquid, much like those incredible oily stickers you might have collected in grade school.
Kane would later call the show, which was accompanied by the soundtrack of dripping water, his "liquid collection."
As the materials eventually moved into netting and lighter fabrics, the color palettes followed suite with splashes of pinks, oranges and purples. In the final part of the show, V-necked and collared dresses covered in sequins glistened down the runway like shiny fins and enchanted the audience in a way only Christopher knows possible.
