Roses and Castles

Christopher Kane A/W 2010 images from Catwalking

Roses and castles is the name for the traditional art of narrow boat painting. There is not an immediate connection with high fashion until you see the current collection by Christopher Kane. He has taken the basic 'canal art' concept and turned it on its head by mixing it up in sharp silhouettes with leather and lace to avoid the twee. Very contemporary, very British, very nice.
