"Some people don't think human beings are sexy. They find other objects sexual. That's quite interesting. On the whole it's a great story. They really attract me and I like those people. When you study them, they are normal people in society and that element of surprise is quite amazing because there's so many fetishes we don't know about." - Christopher Kane
Exploring the broad spectrum of desire - AW19 Liquid Ladies is born of respectful curiosity and appreciation of fetish, with a focus on Looners (balloon obsessives), Rubberists (rubber enthusiasts) and Sploshers (wet and messy fetishism).
Traditional luxury fabrics like lace, crystal mesh and satin all walked the runway but were irreverently overhauled with balloon prints, studs and latex.
The collection is sexy, but Christopher Kane sexy. Never overt and always subversive. "We do sexy differently from everyone else..." said Christopher post show, "Basically it's about the whole idea of fluidity - it's OK to be as fluid as you can."
From backstage, to beauty - go behind the scenes on Christopher Kane AW19 - the season devoted to the kinks that make us all individual.
