Kane on his new menswear collection;
"I decided to launch menswear so I could wear my own designs, my friends were
forever asking me to do t-shirts off the back of the womenswear show themes, so my first shot at it was with the monkey tees;they were so popular I decided to keep it going. So each season we sell men's tees alongside the mainline collection.
I find it difficult to find staples that I love, so I guess I am launching this so I can have a decent wardrobe! The inspirations differ every time, but usually taking the lead from the womenswear."
I can't fully express how excited I am for this. To me, Christopher Kane is the epitome of obviousness. Many people always say how obvious his collections are; like put some crazy gorilla print all over some tee shirt and voila! Though yes it is simple and obvious, no one has done it or at least the way he has. Classic shapes but with amazing prints. Menswear was an obvious next step and i'm surprise it took him so long. There have been many male fans who have worn his tees from the womenswear collections, for example my favorite Andrew Mukamal wearing the gorilla print tee that first drew me in to the Kane world.
My favorite pieces are the printed cardigans,and the leather shorts(that don't look uncomfortably hot).
I cant wait to see the rest!
