christopher kane a/w '10 yes or no?

Christopher Kane's newest collection has left me slightly baffled, I am not sure if I like it but I certainly like the ideas behind it. He has combined two current trends, florals and leather, to make this collection. The leather has a kind of sexy edgish vibe whilst the florals are pretty and sweet so the combination is definitely an interesting one!

Here are the pieces I like from the collection;

This coat sort of makes the flower pattern at the bottom sexy, its like a basic black coat but with some added spice..

The prim collar and bright yellow flowers combine with the shiny leather in a suprisingly satisfying way, she looks like she can be tough but can also be pretty, this definitely appeals to the urban side of me.
This one almost reminds me of some sort of Renaissance dress, (the flowers look like they are taken from some sort of ancient tapestry) except for the fact that its a minidress. I think this would be something I woud hang in my wardrobe and look at from time to time because I liked the intricacy of the flower pattern rather than actually wear.

There were two pieces from this collection that I really didn't like though,

The first picture with the fur collar seems a clumsy nod towards the massive predominance of fur on the catwalks this winter. It also seems to link in slightly with the current trend for aviator jackets but it hasn't been added to the dress with any sort of panache its just stuck on the top of the dress in a way that makes me want to rip it off and throw it away quickly while no-one's looking.

The second dress also seems to be quite clumsily made, the skirt does not sit on the models body properly and what the earth is up with the uncomfortable black stripey thing going on over the front of the skirt?

 Let me know what you think of the collection and whether you would wear any of it?x x x
