Must-Have… Christopher Kane’s Crochet Cardigan
Like fellow powerhouse Miuccia Prada, we wait with bated breath to see what kind of mind-boggling, jaw dropping references London designer Christopher Kane is about to release onto fashion’s trend radar for season’s to come. From intricate floral embroideries placed on patent leather to haute 90′s notes from the likes of Gianni Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, he’s taken us on a wild, un-assuming ride and made our wardrobes all the better for it while becoming a renowned pioneer of the new & the must-have.

This season he touched upon a reference we’d have never seen coming; the mundane, hippie-minded granny-chicness of crochet knits and we’ve been coveting his sci-fi twisted crocheted knit cardigans and separates ever since.
In Kane’s hands, the idea of donning a crochet piece comes full of subversive charm and eccentric energy and we can’t wait to get our hands on a piece or an iteration in the very near future. -NaveedHussain
