Fresh from London Fashion week, Christopher Kane’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection has a distinct minimalist feel. Simple relaxed suiting is complimented with strong graphic print placements. Kane’s 3D linear depictions of the human form are oversized creating a futuristic edge, and his use of pure monochrome against bold primary colours on black, give this look eye catching appeal. Check out the full collection at Fashionising.com.
