Christopher Kane Fall 2009 RTW Collection

Kane can apparently do no wrong either technically or in the eyes of the audience he's attracting, whatever the cost of the handcrafting involved. What he achieved in appliquéing this collection's stripes on organza, making the geometry intersect in blocks or spiral around skirts and sometimes break into vertical ripples in hemlines is extraordinary. He took the edge off stiff, silk-paneled dresses with black velvet ribbons, and tossed plaid cashmere sweaters over equally rigid skirts. Hemlines were adorned with sculpted ruffles or rigid, wavy edging.
