Christopher Kane's milestone tenth catwalk show was a celebration of British 'Make Do and Mend' spirit

On our minds is Christopher Kane’s SS17 collection, which was his tenth catwalk presentation at London Fashion Week. Tapping into the same nostalgic notion of Britain as Burberry did for the season, Kane’s collection celebrated the resourcefulness embraced by the nation during the World Wars. After reaching a milestone decade, Kane’s collections have been underpinned by the ethos of ‘making things work’ ever since the start by making use of whichever material he can get his hands on. For SS17, he referenced the ‘Make, Do and Mend’ initiative through keyrings, decorative stones and scrap-like fabrics mismatched into coherent creations. To an extent, the collection was also a retrospective of Kane’s design past, with polaroids of previous lines stapled onto handkerchiefs and reproduced elements from his renowned MA collection.
