Christopher Kane Inspired by Marilyn

According to WWD, the Scottish-born, London-based designer Christopher Kane’s new pre-fall collection is inspired by John Vachon’s photos of Marilyn on location for River Of No Return
in the Canadian Rockies (collected in the 2010 book, Marilyn, August 1953: The Lost Look Photos.) The connection isn’t obvious – and the image on this pink sweatshirt was actually taken in 1951, on the set of Let’s Make It Legal. However, Kane does incorporate elements of her pin-up style in the collection.
