Craft and work was the theme of this season's Christopher Kane show where the designer revealed: "We wanted to express a tougher femininity this season. I was looking at abstract shapes, hard angles and sharp jags as well as uniforms and utility: I love the idea of the female factory worker." With this reference as a starting point, Kane wove together traditionally old fashioned fabrics like taffeta and heavy silk damask with modern ones like Velcro and holographic lace on sculptural shifts, lab coat toppers, pleated skirts and deconstructed knits over high-waisted trousers.

It's Kane's bold innovation and technical ability, not to mention his intellectual approach to design, that make him truly agenda-setting. Here he experimented with innovative manufacturing to craft foiled lace and iridescent full-print knits for a truly gleaming collection, all the while managing to tick all the burgeoning trends we have seen this far in the season, now sure to be cemented for Autumn/Winter 2017.
