Christopher Kane Resort 2017 Collection Brings In Pansies and Gingham Checks

One of the most successful Scottish fashion designers of all time since his debut in the industry back in 2006, Christopher Kane is mainly known for his free-spirited approach to fashion. For his Christopher Kane resort 2017 collection he specifically took his favorite contemporary designs and translated them into modern versions of uber-feminine silhouettes, reinforcing his ‘I don’t follow the rules’ motto not only through the creations, but also though his own voice backstage.

Like a modern hippy who is not afraid to swim against the tide, he successfully managed to introduce the ultimate modern version of the boho trend, using the signature fresh style and fully reinventing it into something that doesn’t look Seventies or Eighties/Nineties-inspired: it’s just modernism at its purest. To highlight this success, he figuratively awarded most of his pieces with pansies, which are in and of themselves the result of a longtime hybridization from several flower types, exactly like the Christipher Kane resort 2017 collection’s ensembles.

“Pansies are a symbol of freethinking! I like that. I never want to follow trends. Pansies also look like they’ve got cheeky laughing faces. And they’re all these colors because they’re crossbred. And that’s what I’m doing now—crossbreeding my ideas;” he declared backstage.

Pansies also embody the line-up’s ‘grown-up school girl’ theme that, along with the collection’s overall silhouettes and materials, aims at representing “a schoolgirl at an awkward age, just blossoming.” At times “menacing and mischievous,” pansies get along perfectly with the collection’s color palette and choice of fabrics, which juxtapose translucent, sequined materials with cozy, more heavyweight textures.

Leaving nothing by chance, Kane utilized each fabric for a design completely embodying the essence of the material, embellishing the feminine ensembles with translucent materials, and the cozy ones with the oversized, billowy sweaters and coats. Consequently, he also combined all of these proposals together, accentuating the whole ‘Lolita concept’ even more, treating us to a nonconformist, dichotomous potpourri of styles. What’s better than looking like a sort of naïve young adult wearing a coat, and then getting ready for a night out with friends just by taking it off and solely showcasing a more sensual dress underneath?

Christopher Kane also focused on checked and striped patterns, which clearly evoke the schoolgirl style too. To spice things up with a more mature attitude, he brought forth mid-calf or knee-length skirts, pleats and belts cinched at the waists, which add a dynamical turn to the entire collection. Although most of the proposals sinuously caress the body, a few structured, geometrically cut ensembles interrupt their ethereal lines, reminding us about Kane’s always fearless modern take on fashion.
