Christopher Kane looked back to the snakeskin print that adorned his romantic silhouettes for spring 2008, but this time he said he wanted to treat the motif in a “more sinister” way, taking his cues from the serpent of biblical fame. To wit, a fuchsia, full-skirted strapless satin dress pattern was woven into textured intarsia knit sweaters and also rendered as bold pink stripes with zipper details on simple black shift dresses.

In addition, Kane worked his beloved science-class elements, here with DNA strand and molecular structure motifs fashioned, for instance, in round mesh panels on a minidress and as shiny plastic embellishments on a black sweatshirt.
