London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2010 Pt 4: Nathan Jenden & Christopher Kane


Nathan Jenden


Even though I did not like Nathan's latest collection as much as his previous ones, there were some well-cut pieces shown, in this collection where he imagined "church ladies in the jungle."




Christopher Kane

I loved the colourful embroidery on black silks, wool and leather in Christopher Kane's collection (the wool coat was probably my favourite), especially because it reminds me of a dress I have owned for well over 10 years (short, asian-cut and body hugging), and also the silk embroidered opera coat I posted about a year ago:

  3. I have posted elsewhere about the flowery embroideries of Kane's collection but I want to emphasise again how much I like them! Kane has very successfully avoided the traps of chinese-type embroideries (especially on the chinese dresses): they are not vulgar, they do not look cheap in the slightest. A few years ago (10?), this kind of work would only be available to Haute Couture clients. Of course this cannot be Haute Couture work, and the difference would show in a close comparison, but this is still very good work.

  7. Russian inspired rocker... Loved it! This was the first C. Kane collection I didn't find difficult to digest. Is that a good thing? I don't know.

  14. I'm in love the colors, construction, and silhouette of the first Nathan Jensen jacket. I want (read: NEED) it to wear over my American Apparel dress.
