Christopher Kane Teams Up With J Brand for Capsule Denim Collection
Fresh off his 2011 Vogue Fashion Fund win, a dazzling London Fashion Week show, and major props from Anna Wintour, London-based designer Christopher Kane has announced that he’s working with J Brand to produce jeanswear for his 2012 resort collection. In addition to the use of denim, the line will employ a range of other fabrics, which we hope will include a touch of Kane’s signature acid-trip prints.
This isn’t the first time that he’s collaborated with the US-based premium denim company. Last year, Kane and four other emerging designers created limited edition jeans for J Brand in support of their 5×5 project, which went so well that he and J Brand founder Jeff Rudes decided to delve into a long-term business venture. Denim with fresh, innovative design and an ultra-flattering fit? So long, jeggings!
