Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 09 Collection is Nuclear Chic

By: Christina Butty - Published:   Updated: Mar 24 2011 • References: style
As an alternative to floral prints, which the designer is presently tired of, Christopher Kane used a variety of cloud prints on his pre-collection.

Sourced from the free U.K. Ministry of Defense Web Site public access photos, the images screened onto the fashions of the Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 09 collection are from nuclear test explosions from the 1950s to 70s.

Implications - It doesn't take much to turn popular images from history into clothing, so even designers without massive budgets at their disposal could make use of this simple, but effective idea in their creations. Needless to say, there are literally millions of possible designs that could come from reinventing classic designs or images. Stats for Cutaway Cloud Couture Trending: Older & Chilly
