Scottish designer Christopher Kane has allegedly signed on as the new creative director at Balenciaga, following on from French designer Nicolas Ghesquiere’s abrupt departure from the house earlier this month. A MAGAZINE made an announcement this morning on their Facebook page that is yet to be confirmed by the Parisian label but has been bolstered by reports in the Nouvel Observateur, French Grazia (so it must be true then) and on Twitter (which, as always, offers incontrovertible proof about all things fashion).
Anyway, fashion logistics, amirite? Here’s a look at Christopher Kane’s standout show from London Fashion Week SS13, in which the designer played with horror film motifs to create the fashion equivalent of Dr. Frankenstein’s monster – le freak, c’est chic. We’ll keep you updated if and when things are made Facebook official between houses Kane and Balenciaga.
