Christopher Kane, RST15, London.

An example of a more unusual type of garment fastening from Christopher Kane’s Resort 2015 collection. In this example one clip has been used to create a belted effect by pulling on the waist of the garment. A second clip has been used to form a shoulder strap to balance out the asymmetry of the neckline.

We also recently looked at how clips could be used on garments in this example from the Balenciaga AW14 collection».
