It's been a big year for Scottish designer Christopher Kane: 2013 kicked off with Kering--formerly PPR--taking a majority stake in his company and since then he's been moving his brand forward at an ever increasing pace. The latest move for Kane? The official announcement of his very first flagship store.
Rumor had it, Kering (then PPR) execs were interviewing potential CEOs for Christopher Kane before they even announced their investment in the British label. And now they've officially appointed one: Alexandre de Brettes.
This season marked Christopher Kane's first show not as a promising indie designer, but as an established one with a huge luxury conglomerate behind him.
