Tonight Matches owner Ruth and Tom Chapman hosted an event to celebrate Christopher Kane’s Women’s Pre-Fall and Men’s AW13 collection with the man, Christopher Kane, himself.
The event took place at Matches’ private townhouse, No 23 – a very nice and intimate setting, decorated with large bouquets of beautiful white tea roses and Diptyque candles. It really felt like being at someone’s house vs a store event. Laid out over 3 floors, with the bar on the ground floor serving some very delicious cocktails, the Women’s Pre-Fall collection on the 2nd and the Men’s Autumn Winter collection on the 3rd floor.
Out of the Women’s Pre-Fall collection (available to buy now) what struck me the most were the beautiful Velvet pieces, particularly this blue velvet biker jacket:
The men’s collection (available to buy now) continued the Frankenstein theme of the current SS13 women’s collection, and while intended for men it will work for women alike.
I will try and post some more images of the event over the coming days – for now though:
Thank you Matches for a wonderful evening and Christopher Kane for being such an amazing and talented designer, who – if you can judge by one evening – is also most kind, humble and very professional.
