FLOWERING INTO FALL
Spring fashions abound in blossoms, but it is always interesting to see how some designers take floral frocks into fall. Christopher Kane, the bad-boy Scotsman, has succeeded in making flowers not only warm but also tough.
In a sort of Bavarian fraülein meets urban biker, Kane embroidered bright flowers on black leather. The effect can seem kitsch at first glance, but it actually works.
Folkloric and even pretty, the leather makes these flowers tough enough to last through several harsh winters, especially when paired with shearling fleece, this season’s must-have material.
Come Fall 2010, forget them not!
