LONDON — The news of Monday and, well, all of Fashion Week in the British capital was Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection for Burberry. Rather than bore this page’s slim readership with speculative prose, click over to British Vogue to read about Tisci’s new Burberry girl, Next’s own Claudia Lavender. Anyone still reading these words, then can shift attention to Christopher Kane, who showed his Spring / Summer 2019 collection over at the Tate Modern earlier in the afternoon. The talented Scottish designer doubled down on the sex thematics from last season with the catchy slogan, sex in nature, which when repeated ad nauseam begins to sound a bit like the runway soundtrack by Belgian sound designer Simon Halsberghe. All told, this was runway show well worth its billing, not least for its strong lineup that featured five models from across the Next global network including Manu MiloquiTang HeMaria MiguelRocío Marconi, and Maria Vitoria. That is all from London, next stop Milan.
