Founded by brother and sister Christopher and Tammy as co-founders and co-creative directors, Christopher Kane launched in 2006. Since this date, the brand has challenged the boundaries and expectations of luxury fashion. The Scottish founders opened the first Christopher Kane store in Mayfair, London in 2015, and is now a part of the Kering group.
Christopher Kane say that their label is ‘the benchmark for those who dress to please themselves’. This highlights perfectly what the brand is about- defiant femininity and unapologetic style. Offering womenswear, accessories and footwear, the brand also holds a small bridal collection and a small selection of hoodies and t-shirts for men.
Their modern aesthetic is created through masterful manipulation of fabrics and shapes. Often teaming clean and structured cuts with texture and print, Christopher Kane provides a fresh take on fashion. Although largely monochromatic, the collections are pierced with pops of colour and playful prints. Exceptional skill ‘makes the ordinary extraordinary’, creating wearable pieces for the everyday which still make a statement. Knitwear, skirts and trousers are transformed from typical basics into garments which are innovative, creating a new way of perceiving day to day clothing. Christopher Kane designs are fresh and full of attitude, perfect for diversifying an everyday uniform.
Christopher Kane can be found in their London store, as well as through their website and online retailers Net-a-Porter, Farfetch and Matches Fashion.
