Christopher Kane X TIGI-------
Christopher Kane is one of our favorite designers, so it goes without saying that any collaboration news involving the London-based phenom is immediately compelling—even more so if it’s based in beauty. That hasn’t happened all that much yet; despite teaming up with Diptyque last season to fragrance his Fall collection with its Feuille de Lavande aroma, the house that Kane continues to build remains notably free of a signature scent—or a limited-edition makeup palette, for that matter. But Kane hasn’t been shy about his strong opinions on hair. “It’s my way or the highway,” he joked backstage at his Fall show when asked how he goes about choosing a runway look for locks. “I don’t want some big beehive or loads of roses sticking out.” It should come as no surprise, then, that the designer’s first beauty collab is made for manes. Kane has designed a limited-edition headband for TIGI, the brand that he trusts every season to give him strands that are “laid-back, cool, and modern.” Boasting a double dose of black mock leather to add “toughness and strictness” to any hairstyle, according to Kane, the accessory will be available at TIGI salons across the country beginning in September, offered as a gift with the purchase of two TIGI Catwalk products.
