I'm surprised to see so many haters! Actually, I think I would have expected the haters, more due to the prints than anything. I think Kane is moving in the right direction. I find it far better for a designer to radically alter their aesthetic from season to season than for all seasons to be the same general idea (*cough* Rodarte *cough*). The prints are a bit questionable but deffinitely daring, they make the clothing stand out. The transparency accents are lovely and placed in some unexpected places. My only complaint would be that many models seem to have skipped a proper fitting and it makes the clothes seem awkwardly cut... Also, I like how this feels a bit awkward? Did anyone else get that feeling? It's pretty-pretty pastels and beading but deffinitely not completely cutesy or girly. There's a bit of an awkward femininity in it all, it seems so rough-around-the-edges and slightly erotic... If you describe this collection to me, I would think of maybe my mother at some early beach soiree, but then I see it and I certainly can't see my mother in these pieces. This is a thumbs up in my book. There are some looks I can't say I loved (the first ones, more than anything) but as a whole I am glad he went in this direction. Christopher is very young and I'm glad to see he's not trying to chain himself to an established aesthetic but rather experiments with different inspirations.
