DRIES VAN NOTEN: Glamour comes in all different shapes, sizes and materials. This collection was so elegant and said pure luxury. But, with a twist. The most wonderful 60's dresses had military accents such as sleeves, and pockets. It seemed so refreshing to dress down items that are only used on those special occasions. The colors were vibrant, as always. The classic hourglass shape seems to be coming back on the runway. The think strong shoulders, thin waist. My favorite look was a gold sequined dress that seemed so innocent. It had 3/4 lengths sleeves and ruched hips and waist. Wonderful collection, we'll be seeing a lot of this collection on Jak and Jil, come fall.
CHRISTOPHER KANE: When I saw the pictures of this collection for the first time, I really loved the embroidered leather. It seemed very Kane and very London. Dark, rough elements mixed with florals is what I would call London Style. He captures it so well in this collection. It seemed so familiar yet so distant. The length and shapes of the dresses and coats were wonderful. If worn over a pair of nice pants, I think the pieces were actually quite ageless. Overall, wonderful collection. He captures a unique dark side that is also very light and beautiful.
