Everybody LOVES Chris

Christopher Kane's Spring/Summer 2013 collection hit the catwalk at London Fashion week , but what I really admire is his Autumn/Winter 2012 collection - clean lines and dark simplistic colours and prints.He ties silks with furs and dark leather with knitwear.

Here , Chris uses a gorgeous chiffon silk dress in lavender in a black rose print , teamed with basic black heels. As for the hair and make-up , all styling is very simplistic , which I love , letting the clothes speak for themselves : hair is loose with a modest centre parting and very little make-up is used on all of the models.

This chunky red polo neck is made edgy , with Michael Jackson esque trousers and clutch.Red is the ideal winter statement colour , daring yet subdued. Black leather strips run down the crimson trousers (I couldn't resist adding a " thriller" gag in there , so here it is ) it doesn't look like "something evil is lurking in the dark" for  Christopher Kane's A/W 2012 collection ( quote from "Thriller" - har de har )

A quirky take on winter furs , here a grey fur coat looks fabulous with marbled , red , silk drainpipe trousers.A thin black leather belt draws in the waist and small detachable peter - pan collar. For me , this fur jacket is the stand out piece, I love its edgy , quirky sort of feel.

This long striped blazer clashes beautifully with a matching skirt and similarly stripy top.Totally Gothic chic - somehow I think Chris has been watching "The nightmare before Christmas" due to this Jack Skellington inspired outfit , I'm not putting it down or anything - I actually really love it!

This honestly hasn't got anything to do with anything but this song is just awesome ; K-pop for ever!!
