Various designers have different approaches when tackling sex. There are more overt, like Italian designers Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, or the more sensual, such as Calvin Klein. Then there’s Christopher Kane, an incredibly unique designer, whose approach to sex is more intellectual than intercourse. For spring 2019, his parade of sexually-liberated women was mostly covered up, inspired by Sir David Attenborough’s discoveries of animal mating behaviors and Marilyn Monroe’s own reflections on being the ultimate sex symbol. This dichotomy of references was reflected on the runway in the forms of broad-shouldered silhouettes in lingerie lace and semi-deconstructed cocktail dresses that wafted across the models’ bodies. These weren’t your every day “sexy” clothes, but the prowess and the overwhelming tension were all there.
