Designer Christopher Kane's spring 2016 London Fashion Week runway show was a display of colorful pieces. However, one item stood out from his collection - the models wore trash bags on their heads while they sashayed on the catwalk.
The trash bags were wrapped around and tied, similar to how grandmothers would wear a head scarf. The designer made use of the plastic as an accessory amidst a showcase of feathers, lace, flower appliques, sheepskin, fur, silk and plastic. The collection circled around a "Lost and Found" theme.
"I have always been obsessed with recluses and the image of the outsider making their own world by hoarding things away," Kane wrote in the notes for the runway show, according to Racked. "There is an idea of beauty expired," he added. "Dead and thrown away beauty often looks better than when it was supposedly alive."
Interestingly, Kane's sister once detailed that their mother used to wear plastic rain hats when they were little kids. Their mom died last year and the designer's idea could also be seen as a fitting tribute to her, according to Jezebel.
This isn't the first time Kane has made use of trash bags in his designs as he also created an outfit using black plastic bags, according to Refinery29.
