Christopher Kane-Thrift Inspiration

I found Christopher Kanes collection quite inspiring for this summer-it was fun to see faded denim back in fashion again-I purposely thrifted my River Island faded denim cropped jacket and my Diesel faded denim skirt to fit in this current trend!

I thought I would check out his fall collection and although I don't intend on buying winter clothes just yet (!), it has inspired me with some thoughts of what I could thrift if similiar items are to be had- I particularly love the jumper dress, the sequinned cardi with the LBD and the sleeveless coat over the chiffon dress- I think these trends can be obtainable through the high street (maybe not just yet) and by thrifting!!
So although many of us are thinking summer, if you do go thrifting keep your eyes peeled for any winter items that can translate these trends, if you love them like me!!

I like that last look a lot!

I adored his last summer ('07) collection, it was soo cool

Ida said...

I am not exactly fascinated by the trend, or perhaps I am just too excited to enjoy the summer to think of winter. I somehow find it quite dull color-wise. I love all kinds of sweaters, though, so I wouldn't mind getting the dress;))
Enjoy your weekend, Sharon, my dear!
