>> Easily the hottest ticket at London Fashion Week, Christopher Kane brought out the masses earlier today. But those expecting a colorful outings like seasons past are in for a surprise — as guests were served carrot and coriander soup, Kane sent out pieces in largely black and neutral shades — Hilary Alexander likened the geometric patterns to the stroke of a black marker on a white sheet of paper. Men's brogues covered feet — that or crushed purple and gold velvet high heels that models were warned about before the show — apparently the heels were fragile. All in all, definitely a toned down version of classics compared to what Kane has done in the past, but still impressive enough to keep the critics happy; as Suzy Menkes put it, "Everything was subtle, sensitive and just right, showing Kane as a fast-growing talent."
