Giles Deacon’s romantic collection of boy meets girl evening wear is an anthology of opulent fashion. According to Style.com, a country house accidentally afire inspired Deacon’s creativity: “I just had this idea of someone rushing out of a beautiful house,” he said. “It’s burning down and what are you going to take?”
It’s nearly impossible to say which we would choose first in a collection of maxi dresses layered with strong collared necklines, organza ruffled skirts mirroring nightfall and majestic tailored jackets. Water stained prints reigned high and mighty against a dainty neutral palette of creams and golds. Burnt black and yellow stormed down the catwalk turning heads when mixed with feather embellishments. However, nothing raged more than the impish headpieces, constructed by renowned milliner Stephen Jones.
The show emerged with tons of black and pinstripes that gradually shifted into a gradient of color with deep blues, purples and reds. Mainly a collection of coquettish cocktail dresses, Kane’s look for Fall 2012 is unique in its structured, piping details.
Cut out dresses revealed a lot of skin, while chunky turtlenecks and and collared overcoats kept things a little less provocative. An eclectic purple leopard print and raging fiery red snakeskin pattern heated things up plenty toward the end when paired with harsh black leather. The Kane woman is 1/4 girly and 3/4 rock n’ roll.
