The New Christopher Kane Collection is Inspired by 3D Body Mapping

Designer Christopher Kane recently revealed his latest summer menswear collection at a fashion show in London, showcasing designs that he described as having been inspired by 3D body-mapping techniques.

Each ensemble in Kane's menswear collection is a vibrant combination of a button-up top and casual slacks. This combination displays a large, three-dimensional print over its entire surface, from top to bottom. To create this effect, Kane took graphic photographs of faces and other body parts (some naughtier than others) and blew them up using 3D printing technology. After applying them to his garments, the photographs create a 3D effect, as if the garments' patterns were leaping out at passersby.

With these fashion designs, Kane has demonstrated how futuristic technology can be incorporated into modern-day fashion, without compromising either functionality or fashionability.
