Atomic Physics Intersects With Streamlined Menswear at Christopher Kane
A sense of humor shines through the severe silhouettes at Christopher Kane’s Fall 2014 menswear show. It seems that Bill Nye the Science Guy has taken to helping out with fashion inspiration. Kane and the atomic world of science have come up with a concept that is fun and worth wearing. Simple? Perhaps, but some of the best ideas are the simplest.
It’s youthful feel and vibrant coloration allow it to be the envy of fashionisto’s the world over while the styling opportunities are limitless and allow for the most coveted of street style shots to be taken. I feel like Christopher Kane has stepped out of the world of contemporary classics and moved into a world of trend-setting nouveau riche garb. This is a good thing.
His suiting and sportswear fill the need that his loyal preceding consumers have while the new Christopher Kane look appeals to the Millennial Generation and our need for quirky “make-a-statement” prints. The statement of course being that of bio-chemical beauty at the atomic level is what it’s all about. Make-up, hair product, The obsession to learn, expand and define has driven us to turn to science and it’s about time that fashion has done so.
Wear the statement prints under a suit, over a button-down or under a chunky knit and you’ll be looking sharp for Fall 2014. Or another option is to pair one of the matte finish printed jumpers with a patent leather overcoat. Of course you can be ever so daring and wear it over the shoulders but worn properly is always an option as well. That dramatic feel is certainly how I’d pair this but for a more discreet nonchalant look a simple sports coat in wool is perfect.
