Plastic tubes containing swooshing liquid a la Lucy McRae may make it into music videos, but highly unlikey to hit the street — until now that is.
Christopher Kane’s Fall 2011 collection, however playful and peculiar, is proof that any abstract concept can be cleverly transformed for the runway and the street with some ingenuity.
For his collection, Kane set out to “find a textile that’s never been used.” The end result was plastic trims filled with a colorful mix of vegetable oil and glycerine. The liquid ” bubbled its way up” through the plastic encasing as it was warmed by the model’s body.
Kane is notorious for his kitschy fashion but I must admit I admire the man for bringing one of the most impossible materials — liquid — to a level of desirability and wearability.
