Okay, we admit: few designers combine eclectic patterns, innovative styles and impactful ideas the way Christopher Kane does. This season the Scottish-born and London-based designer not only introduced his new „see now, buy now“ retail strategy, he also celebrated his 10th anniversary and his first season at Uzwei. And that alone, we thought, was a reason enough for celebration.
What started as a democratic (in a sense that it was, you know, open for everybody without any lunch plans) panel discussion on the future of fashion between Kane, ICON’s editor-in-chief Inga Griese, our fashion director Rungang Zhu and connoseur Annette Weber, ended as a lavish 3-course dinner party for a selected guestlist. With Uzwei turned into an abracadabra spring restaurant, the evening evolved around Kane’s colorful spring-summer collection, supermodel Luca Gadjus, actresses Claudia Michelsen, Julia Malik and Pheline Roggan and a group of friends that made up for an eventful evening.
The topic in focus? Inspiration, dedication, commitment. The question in focus? If mister Kane could choose, would he have chosen the same path again? The answer: of course he would. With a solid fan base and justified praise coming from the experts, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Welcome on board, Mr. Kane!
Christopher Kane’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection is now available at Uzwei. Discover it from Monday to Saturday from 10AM to 7PM.
