Let's just get this out of the way first. The shoes or thick clompy sandals are hideous and almost ruin the whole feminine, detailed and refined look of the collection. Thankfully, I can look past this eyesore and see a beautiful vision. Certainly no where near as beautiful as his iconic fluorescent and laser-cut leather collection last Spring which I reviewed here. He has created a subtle contrast here between the geometric  cuts of the fabric and the soft floral prints and materials. Also, some beautiful embellishment and embroidery features in this collection paired with a matte satin look. What I particularly like is the velvet vintage floral coat that Lindsay Lullman wears. The material Kane uses makes it look almost translucent and magical. It is a little disappointing that he could not execute the same level of vision and cohesive look that he did last Spring but designers all have their ups and downs. It's part of the creative cycle. I look forward to next Spring then!
