A lot of lace
Admittedly this is a lot of detail for one sole picture. One is almost tempted to admit defeat just because it is hard to know where to set one’s eyes on. This is partly due to the setting and the styling, yet most of the credit deserves probably the exuberant Christopher Kane look, all black lace and floral embroidery. When Cathy Horyn saw the designer’s fall 2010 collection, she was impressed, yet in the same time she couldn’t help but mention “sickly sweet embroideries”. Sarah Mower described her first reaction as “a kind of sick stomach lurch (…) brought on by witnessing something cheap and tasteless being transformed into fashion at speed.” Not necessarily the perfect start for a review, yet on the whole the collection worked in her eyes as well. Sometimes the lines are slightly blurred and something which runs a high risk of being over the top, works perfectly in the end. This picture surely does.
