Christopher Kane Resort 2018 Collection

CHRISTOPHER KANE goes back to his roots in the Resort 2018 Collection. Shot in Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House in Helensburgh, Glasgow, Kane makes use of beams of sunlight, natural greenery and the architecture and furnishings of Hill House.



Kane says, “I came across a photograph of the Glasgow Four and it got me thinking about the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret MacDonald, and how their work influenced modern art and design. It also made me feel very proud and patriotic of this highly important movement which originated in Scotland and I wanted to celebrate that. The collection has subtle nods to this movement whilst also looking at my domestic working class roots.”




The turn-of-the-century style house is echoed throughout the Resort 2018 Collection in its frills, white lace, high collars, tunics and rose embellishments. Yet, with a twist of modernity as biker jackets, baggy jumpers with Scottish embroidered on and wrap-around heels also make an appearance.
