Space Race: Christopher Kane’s Spring 2011 Menswear


“I became obsessed with the explosions and landscapes from space pictures,” London-based designer Christopher Kane explains of his Spring/Summer 2011 men’s collection. “I loved the colors and unbelievable detail. I printed them onto simple shapes like loose-fit t-shirts, cashmere and silk mix knit sweaters, and cardigans. Tailoring came in the shape of soft black leather suit jackets with zip detail and sporty leather shorts.”

“I also experimented with the hoodie and patched leather arms,” Kane continues, “with multi-star prints for a sporty, otherworldy look.” Check out some of these stellar looks in our exclusive slideshow, above.
