I'd take issue that there's anything particularly new here for Kane.
It's essentially another meditation on lava lamps following on from AW11/12 spliced with the pleather lace and colour on black ideas from recent collections.
But - the pleather lace bell-bottoms aside (which were [I]so[I] unflattering) - I do think this is a better collection than AW11/12. It's more interesting, more flamboyant. And, it seems to me, created with a freer hand.
I liked the borrowing of the rocket shape that you get with some lava lamps into some of the silhouettes. That also calls to mind those ice lollies from childhood. And continues the play on hot and cold that we saw in AW11/12 with the fluid panels that heat up with the body.
For SS12 I wouldn't mind seeing these rocket lolly silhouettes, the rainbow colour, and bring back the heat reactive fluid stuff but in larger panels or whole garments if possible. That could be cool hot future psychedelia bodycon.
