The British designer explored the world of fetish in his latest collection

You might remember the brand's recent collections that were built around "The Joy of Sex", but this season, Christopher Kane opted to go down a kinkier route by exploring fetishism, with details that had guests do a double take in a good way. Coupled with a tinge of humour, there was a balloon T-shirt accompanying the word ' Looner'; lace that was strategically mashed with a fuchsia satin skirt; and abstract motifs that were inspired by drops of oil. But one thing all the looks had in common, were the colourful liquid-filled plastic accessories—lined with crystals—that gave the mostly black-and-white palette that dose of interest, from a neck collar to a brooch or a belt. The bags, in particular, gave off a medicinal vibe, introduced in a pill-like oval shape that reminded us of an IV bag, toted by the crystal handle or carried like a pouch. Will this be the next bag du jour? Practicality aside, you can't deny that it's a fun piece to tote around. Just opt for clothing with pockets and you're good to go.
