Blue Velvet: Christopher Kane Men's FW12

BY Alice Newell-Hanson | Tue. July 17, 2012 | 12:00 AM | OC
Christopher Kane described the deep red that runs through his fall collection as the color "of a vial of blood." Very Angelina and Billy Bob. In reality, the designer had been thinking about Cruising, the 1980 West Village serial killer movie starring Al Pacino—one of the seediest films ever made about New York (which is really saying something). But Christopher Kane can turn a stickerbook into a demi-couture dress, so his fall men's tee collection is dark in the most innovative way. Evoking the inky interiors of 80s NYC bars, T-shirts and sweaters are covered in patches and pinstripes of black, marine, and burgundy flock. The fiber panels have the look of velvet but a slightly toughter texture—it's like very manly velvet.
