LFW – Kilian Kerner S/S 2014 collection: the red carpet collection
Hailed as the next big thing by fashion royalty Suzi Menkes, Kilian Kerner’s first UK presentation at the Waldorf Hotel certainly didn’t disappoint.
The weather outside may have been dreary, but the glamour of the dresses, the jazz on the piano by Greg Foat and the chandeliers quickly paled thoughts of rain and busy London streets into insignificance.
With a luxurious palette of white, gold, navy and black, the stark contrasts of the finest fabrics created ruffles and instant glamour as the light and shadows created an A-list worthy gleam across the plush materials.
Kilner Kerner’s career fist began when he was spotted by the singer Nena at a concert, wearing a Rolling Stones T-shirt that he had made himself. He was then asked to create clothes for the singer, transcending him into the limelight. A year and a half later his label was created. Not only has he been internationally praised, but he is also the only designer to be asked by Vogue Germany to create a documentary.
A far cry from the dizzying days of handmade tees, he now creates ball gowns and sleek evening dresses for the rich and famous, only using the most advanced techniques and materials. The standout piece of the collection was an exquisite gold top paired with a billowing ball gown skirt, which is bound to cause stirs among future red carpets.
