When Christopher Kane
noticed that guys were buying the Frankenstein T-shirts from his last collection for women, it was a no-brainer to add monsters to his new season's offering for men. Not just Frank, but Dracula and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. They fitted perfectly with the pop-goth sensibility that is one of the tentpoles of the extraordinary Kane design ethos. Color it black and purple ("Always relevant for me," said the designer) and dress it up with animal prints: a leopard scarf, a jaguar-print shirt. Add electric blue velvet pants, a dress shirt trimmed with goatskin, a sweater in a 3-D knit chenille, and you've got yourself a proposition as outré glamorous as Lux Interior's psychobilly band the Cramps. Kane sealed the deal with velvet slippers, embroidered with flowers, appliquéd with monsters, and all the footwear you could wish for the undead man in your life.
