But what makes Kane’s vision feel like a step-change from the previous generation is that he has the millennial’s interest in and understanding of technology and science as a natural extension of creativity. At school his favourite class, aside from art, was science. “I loved the diagrams. It was so visual. And it’s super cheesy, but we are all of us working miracles.” Helixes, biological diagrams, and details taken from safety buckles and cable ties: the motifs of the Christopher Kane brand express something about the aspirations of a generation whose highest and most richly rewarded achievers are the supergeeks of Silicon Valley.
