Christopher Kane 十年精華的新詮釋/ Christopher Kane, from past to present. 10 Capsule collection


​當冬天逐漸接近臺北,路上的行人總是換上一副被冷風吹襲時的撲克臉,這樣的景象在臺北的冬天其實隨處可見,已經失去溫度的街頭連人們也決定收起外向的民族熱情只為了維持身體那其實差不了多少的體溫。

臺北是一個奇妙的城市,人們在這裡的日常生活到了冬天就像那些聳立的大樓一樣無聊失色甚至失去人與人之間維持關係的溫度。甚至連熱情如火的代表色在冬天都會自動轉換為暗沈的酒紅色,色彩在冬天的臺北猶如運動在臺灣一樣不被重視。

或許是草根性、或許是民族性,從小到大都被教導著不要隨便表達自己的意見,只需要做好份內的工作即可;不要成為團體中的異己,不要成為團體中鮮豔閃耀的那個人,因為這對你的生活並不會加分到哪裡去,而且你會流失過去經驗給你的養分。可惜的是,當世代正在轉移以及社會不斷進步下,充滿個人色彩的社會逐漸的變成一件好的事情,可惜這個說法仍有人疑慮甚至有人反對,只因為舊有的體制之所以存在必有其價值所在。因此這個世代對於價值觀的掙扎以及如何成功散發屬於自己鮮豔的色彩,似乎得取得一個恰到好處的平衡。

時尚是一個最充滿個人色彩的產業,每個設計師都不斷檢視過去的歷史來化做未來的養分,如同設計師 Christopher Kane 日前推出了十件關於承襲舊有價值卻仍然閃耀新型態的色彩毛衣。從過去十年最熱門的印花圖騰,將其定義以及設計,這命名為10 Capsule 系列的毛衣,就像是一個時空膠囊,一個將過去有價值的事情在某個時間過後再度檢視,並且成為未來閃耀自己新色彩的養分的膠囊。

Taipei has started losing colours when the winter is approaching this city. You will never know how those citizens have able to put these poker faces during the whole season and act like those boring concrete jungle. The warm-less and colour-less street doesn't look like Taipei anymore.

​People in Taipei need some special colour and pattern to helping them invoke them during the winter. Fortunately, Christopher Kane unveiled his special collection '10 capsule' for the winter and the coming holiday. 10 capsule is a collection of sweatshirts, that celebrates some the designer’s most iconic prints since the launch of the brand ten years ago. Featuring a mix of unisex, men’s and women’s styles, the capsule revisits the SS09 chimp, AW10 florals, and the SS14 botanical print, amongst others.

​​​

​Known for his masterful way of transforming the ordinary, finding inspiration in the unexpected, and interpreting it into something beautiful and desirable, each sweatshirt highlights a significant moment in the designer’s immensely successful career to date. To celebrate this special launch, the full capsule was photographed on current students from Taylor High School in Motherwell, Scotland, where Christopher himself studied.

“We wanted to celebrate some of our most iconic and popular prints with the 10 capsule and felt the sweatshirt is something you can wear with anything. We wanted it to be both fun and functional, something easy to wear, which you can dress up or down. There was a lot of debate with my studio team over which prints to choose but in the end it was very easy; each print means something to me and says so much about me, my interests and my collections over the last 10 years. It was very emotional to see how they have evolved over time and felt wrong at times to pick one over the other.” - Christopher Kane
