It's the kind of craftsmanship that you would typically only expect of couture that came down the runway for Christopher Kane's Fall 2013 collection. It's what Kane does best — looks that surprise, entertain, draw you in, and differentiate this lineup. The Fall 2013 collection is jam-packed with thoughtful, playful, and whimsical details that feel artistic and bold but wearable. Sharp outerwear with bold pops of blue and luxe fur finishes were just the primer for the urban-feeling camo prints and tough-girl kilts and leather that unfolded next. But that wasn't even the half of it — Kane's vision seemed to be on overdrive as look after look launched something new and distinct from the one that came before it. The urban warrior was followed with a textured story, where dresses were sculpted in swirls and patterns, then something more like floral appliqué, until the show culminated in a confection so full and brimming with delicate, full-bodied embellishment that the garment itself seemed to be living.
