Christopher Kane’s AW14 collection stormed the catwalk this morning, stealing the LFW limelight once again. The pieces could only be described as amazing – we’re talking mannish tailoring, cool crystals, pansy holograms, organza and perfect pleats. But they weren’t even the stars of the show – the brand launched their first fully-fledged line of hot handbags on the catwalk.
The eight-piece collection of gorgeous box bags, clutches and totes came in an array of textures (think snakeskin, croc and calf-hair effects), with signature Kane touches in the form of health and safety-inspired neon plastic clasps and ruched protective nylon layers.
The bags won’t hit the shelves until autumn this year, but we have a sneaking suspicion that they’ll be a smidge out of our price range (read… a lot out of our of our price range…). Here’s hoping there’ll be high street homages aplenty!
