This Christopher Kane Fall Collection Looks to Atoms for Inspiration

As well as adopting a variety of molecular-inspired prints in the women's Pre-Fall fashion collection, the Christopher Kane Fall 2014 menswear collection shows off a range of these too. Other elements that seemed to take cues from the womenswear collection included structure and a strong use of black.

However, what sets the collection for men and women apart is what Kane calls a quintessential "super-boyishness," that makes sure clothing for men looks like it was made for men. With molecular details blown up to large scale on the fronts of shirts and sweaters, it was obvious where the atomic inspiration came in. However, even on the garments where this inspiration wasn't as noticeable, you could be sure that it was woven into the fabric in some way, perhaps in ways that were not visible to the naked eye.
