Mikhael Kale Spring/Summer 2010
I’ve adored Mr. Mikhael Kale for so long, it’s a wonder that this is the first time the Patron saint of the urban cool woman is featured here. This Toronto native and Central Saint Martins graduate embodies charm, passion and oozes massive amounts of likability.
For some, his designs may be based in classicality with sharp and short cocktail dresses for the beautiful young things. Whipped pink confections, robin-blue crisscrossed numbers all tight, tiny and cut close to the body. But ripped and revved in fringe and plunging necklines – Kale challenges his women. Forces them to push forward and strut center stage, for these pieces are not for those with a faint heart.
