#FreeTheNipple combines with Christopher Kane’s mature and sophisticated fashion pieces baring all on the London 2015 Spring Runway.
Could your beaming headlights be next season’s most stylish accessories? It certainly looks that way. From what we’ve seen at on the runway – bras and pasties are out, nipples are in.
At London Fashion Week’s Spring 2015 shows, models were bearing their breasts left, right and centre. Tom Ford recently presented sequinned nipple pasties on the runway, but Burberry, Erdem and Christopher Kane took the look one step further this week – bra-less is the new trend, it seems.
This season, Christopher Kane’s show was about more than showcasing his ensembles. As a former Saint Martins student of the late Professor Louise Wilson, his collection was influenced by her presence in his life, and her passing.
