Christopher Kane Resort 2019

The designer took Tokyo’s dark side as his theme for this racy collection of neon sign colors, and textures and silhouettes that nodded to the city’s myriad sex clubs. The rubberized red lace dress and matching coat encapsulated the dark and slightly sinister mood of the collection, which was shot at night by Laurence Ellis.
Lacy lingerie dresses with barely there, rounded skirts had a Goth feel, as did a see-through black dress layered over a bright purple bra. There were some razor-sharp edges, too, in the form of pointed, jutting lapels on a black, rhinestone-edged satin coat and sporty tailored jacket. Softness came in the form of a two-tone hoodie with “More Baby More” written in iridescent letters across the front and a long and billowy white shirt proclaiming that universal truth: “Sh** Happens.”
During a walk-through, Kane said Tokyo has always offered “endless inspiration for me,” adding that his love of subversion is “never at the expense of the clothes. I want to empower women when they put on my work.”

Christopher Bates to Sell Men’s Collection to Nordstrom in Canada

Canadian men’s designer Christopher Bates will be celebrating his 10th anniversary with a runway show Tuesday night during Toronto Fashion Week at the same time he reveals a deal with Nordstrom as the brand’s exclusive department store partner in Canada.
“Spring/summer 2019 is by far one of my most technically advanced collections and having it launch with such an iconic retailer as Nordstrom is a dream come true,” said Bates.
The spring collection is inspired by vintage tennis and cycling wear and includes a focus on technical fabrics and modern tailoring. Each piece is created with luxury textiles from Italy and include 3-D textured bomber jackets, jersey travel blazers, colorful knitwear and lightweight jackets and coats.

Christopher Bailey Reflects on Legacy – and Life After Burberry

Winding down his 17-year tenure at Burberry with a colorful collection that had a streetwise edge, Christopher Bailey was in a “chipper” yet reflective mood before his show.
In a wide-ranging chat, he spoke about his achievements, a few regrets, his future in fashion, and his role in Burberry’s creative transition:
WWD: How did it feel to design your last collection?
Christopher Bailey: It felt poignant. I had a lot of reflection, but I’m so serene with the decision and it just feels right. I feel extraordinarily privileged that I’ve been able to be somewhere that I have loved so deeply for 17 years. I just feel very calm and chipper about it.
WWD: You are under contract until the end of the year. How long will you stay?
C.B.: My last real working day is March 31, when I step down from my role and then I’m in advisory capacity to the board all the way through to December — as and when they need me. It’s clearly formal and contractual, but it’s not like I need to go there every day.
WWD: You stuck with see-now-buy-now for your last show?
C.B.: As I said when we started this see-now-buy-now, we don’t have all the answers

Christopher Kane Flashes His Scottish Colors at Burn’s Night Celebration

BOTTOMS UP: Christopher Kane brought a taste of his native Scotland to London on Thursday during a Burn’s Night celebration in honor of Robert Burns, who is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland.
“I’ve always been fascinated by Robert Burns, he was a real rebel, a troublemaker, a complete womanizer and at the same time he had a real love of Scotland,” said the designer, admitting that he’s never met a rebel he didn’t like. “It was also just an excuse to get everyone together and drink for the new year.”
Friends including Edie Campbell, Pam Hogg, Patrick Grant, Jack Guinness and Erdem Moralioglu joined the designer at the London Edition hotel’s intimate Punch room, and they were all decked out in traditional Scottish kilts or tartan trousers. They were treated to music by the band Licence to Ceilidh and whiskey-based cocktails.

“Just get a whiskey,” said the designer when asked for cocktail recommendations, waving a glass of whiskey on the rocks. Edie Campbell was quick to take his advice, having a sip straight from the bottle, while her friends snapped pictures of her.
It was a welcome break for the designer, who is in high gear

EXCLUSIVE: Model Christopher Cates Pens Letter Calling for Action Against Harassment

As the uproar continues over sexual harassment in industries stretching from entertainment to media to finance, the fashion world has remained relatively on the sidelines – until now.
On Saturday, The New York Times published a long-rumored story about alleged harassment of male models by the photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Both men, via statements their lawyers gave to the Times, vigorously denied the allegations made in the story, although Conde Nast and Conde Nast International both said Saturday that they would be severing ties with the two photographers – at least for now.
The Times’ story comes several months after model Cameron Russell created an Instagram account on which anonymous individuals posted stories about their mistreatment in the industry. Last October, Terry Richardson was dropped by the leading fashion magazine publishers but only after years of allegations surrounding his behavior, while model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Weber in December claiming the photographer harassed him. Weber has denied those claims, as well.
In November, 27-year-old British model Edie Campbell penned an exclusive letter for WWD to the fashion industry in which she said, “We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations,” going

Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos Launch a Townhouse Concept Store

FRIENDLY TAKEOVER: Best known for their artsy approach to fashion, design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos have taken over a three-story townhouse in South Kensington, as part of the Brompton Design District partnership with brands, which runs within the London Design Festival.
The duo set up a art and design space, filled with quirky pieces from their friends, who happen to be artists, as well. The objects are exclusive collaborations, all available for purchase, and are shown alongside the brand’s ready-to-wear collections, including spring-summer 2018, which debuted on Sunday and will be available for pre-order.
This is a premier of sorts for the brand, which doesn’t have its own brick-and-mortar.
“Yes, this is a suggestion of what [our store] might look like, but we are actually excited by the idea that this is temporary and that it gives a sense of ‘see it now or you might miss something,’” explained Pilotto at the opening on Sunday. Added De Vos: “We really don’t like the word pop-up, but we’ve been using it because this is a five-week-stunt, and it is a concept that works for us. There are so many different aspects to us and our work, and this is a great way

Christopher Kane Cuts Ribbon on Bond Street Pop-Up in London

ROCKING OUT: “Surreal” was the adjective Christopher Kane chose to describe the opening of his first shop on Bond Street, a pop-up that will remain in place until the end of the year.
“I grew up knowing this street, seeing all the big brands on it. I’ve had to pinch myself now that I’m here. It feels very strange – but brilliant,” said Kane during an opening party in London on Wednesday night.
As reported, the space at 15 Old Bond Street is stocking key show and commercial ready-to-wear and accessories, and will also offer exclusive pieces made for the store. Kane’s flagship on Mount Street remains open.
Kane said he likes the idea of being able “to meet and greet” potential new customers in the Bond Street space, which has in the past been home to fellow Kering brand Bottega Veneta, and to Tod’s.
He was chatting in front of a display of marbled-surface Crocs studded with chunky, colored or sparkling rocks, some natural, others lab-grown. All of them would have made Pebbles Flintstone swoon.
“The Crocs are doing so well and we’re going to continue to collaborate with the company,” said Kane, whose decision to put Crocs on the runway caused many front-row guests to raise their

Christopher Kane, Central Saint Martins Students Reimagine ‘Beauty and the Beast’

DISNEY FOR ADULTS: Disney is giving its adult fans a chance to relive their childhoods with a series of designer collaborations marking its new adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast.”
Christopher Kane is among Disney’s most popular collaborators, having just launched an extensive collection of ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by the new film.
As a self-confessed Disney fan and “animation snob” since childhood, the designer said he had always been looking for the right opportunity to partner with Disney.
“I hated ‘Tom and Jerry,’ I hated all that crap. I only watched Disney as a child, and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was even more of an exception because Belle was not a princess; she was a normal girl, she was smart, she was an outsider, so that’s why I had an immediate attraction,” said Kane, who celebrated the collection launch at his Mount Street flagship on Thursday.
The new, “more mature” adaptation of the film featuring Emma Watson as Belle presented an opportunity for the designer to reimagine the children’s classic into a collection for adults.

He re-created the rose motif in myriad ways, printing it on simple T-shirts or sweatshirts with sleeve cutouts, incorporating it on a macramé lace minidress or adding oversize floral

Christopher Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd (Christo) was one of the greatest English gardeners of the twentieth century, perhaps the finest plantsman of them all. His creation is the garden at Great Dixter in East Sussex, and it is a tribute to his vision and achievement that, after his death in 2006, the Heritage Lottery Fund made a grant of £4 million to help preserve it for the nation. This enjoyable and revealing book – the first biography of Christo – is also the story of Dixter from 1910 to 2006, a unique unbroken history of one English house and one English garden spanning a century. It was Christo’s father, Nathaniel, who bought the medieval manor at Dixter and called in the fashionable Edwardian architect, Lutyens, to rebuild the house and lay out the garden. And it was his mother, Daisy, who made the first wild garden in the meadows there. Christo was born at Dixter in 1921. Apart from boarding school, war service and a period at horticultural college, he spent his whole life there, constantly re-planting and enriching the garden, while turning out landmark books and exhaustive journalism. Opinionated, argumentative and gloriously eccentric, he changed the face of English gardening through his passions for meadow gardening, dazzling colours and thorough husbandry. As the baby of a family of six – five boys and a girl – Christo was stifled by his adoring mother. Music-loving and sports-hating, he knew the Latin names of plants before he was eight. This fascinating book reveals what made Christo tick by examining his relationships with his generous but scheming mother, his like-minded friends (such as gardeners Anna Pavord and Beth Chatto) and his colleagues (including his head gardener, Fergus Garrett, a plantsman in Christo’s own mould).
