Christopher Kane Meets the High Street

Christopher Kane was a key show stealer for me at fashion week with his stunning Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Inspired by Photosynthesis and the idea of inadequacy of high school sex education. The collection was bold, bright and oh so daring with cut out petal embroideries and grungy combinations.

Today I wanted to focus on the baggy jumper and skirt combo that repeated itself throughout the collection. Modesty is evident. It's stylish, it's Avante Garde and it's oh so easy to replicate off the runway.

I can see this trend being HUGE here in Ireland this spring, It's still terribly nippy so jumpers will probably be around right up until, and even during summer, and the modest length of the midi will help to keep our legs toasty.

The simple silhouette allows us to play around with textures, colors and patterns. Don't be afraid to block and mis-match! Be brave, be bold, add a fluorescent hat or a chunky pair of shoes and don't forget your funkiest retro sunnies!

Here are a few different looks that I've composed using pieces from one of my favorite high street stores, Topshop:  




Which one of these looks would you sport?
