Art of Christopher Kane

Art of Christopher Kane

I love when my two favorite things, fashion and art, collide.

Last season, after seeing the Matisse show at MoMA, I couldn’t help but notice the presence of cutouts on the runway. And, at London Fashion Week this season, Christopher Kane incorporated contour drawings in his collection that reminded me, once again, of Matisse but also of work by Picasso, Rodin and many others. Kane’s illustrations add a sense of life and movement to the collection, but what I love most is how they evoke the beauty of a simple, organic line.

Sometimes I think an artist’s sketch can be more powerful than the finished product.

How do you feel about fashion mimicking works of art? A cool ode to the artist, or unoriginal?
