Spring 2016 Christopher Kane Runway Blue Fringe on Black Mini Dress
The Spring 2016 collection presented by Christopher Kane was a hit with many of the pieces selling out world-wide as soon as they became available. Including this one. Vogue own Sarah Mower's review of the show stated in part: "“Last season, she discovered sex” said Christopher Kane. “Now she’s crazy in love!”...Belaboring explanations is never the way to “understand” Christopher Kane, though. Getting him is always a case of whether you appreciate his electric fusion of weirdness and chic. There were jolts of that sort of current running through the details... Fun, odd and elegant by turns, this was a show which covered a lot of bases. No matter what life has been throwing at him, it proved that Christopher Kane is a solid designer."
This dress was favored by many of the street style set and its a treat to have found one in a more generous cut. The dress is a simple black, sleeveless sheath that has a hidden set zipper up one side so none of the line of the dress is broken. The neckline is plunged with a low cut V at the front and again at the back and the dress flares out a touch as it nears the hem. It is the fringe that takes this dress from a little black dress to a wow. From one shoulder down to the opposite hem on both sides runs a swath of fringe in a bright, bold blue. When you move you realize that there are two other layers of fringe under that. One in green and the other in white. The movement and color that this creates is fabulously bold and fun. The dress looks like it has never been worn, or worn very little. Excellent condition
Fully lined in a black silk and closes with a hidden set zipper up one side. Tagged a modern UK12, US8, EU40 and is cut generously. Note that for those that use me as a reference for size - this one is cut generously. I have it clipped a bit in the back in this shot. It would be an easy later to fit it down a bit if needed.
