On a scale of unorthodox to cray cray, the fact that the extremely popular and PPR/Kering-backed young designer Christopher Kane hasn't made a push to launch e-commerce lands somewhere near the second "cray." (WWD quaintly calls it "one of the quirks of his business.") But Kane took a moment to explain himself at the Vogue Festival saying, "Simply, it's because we want to do the best collections and bring in more people, and so we've been using our resources for that. Websites cost money, and we want to do it the best we can do. When the time is right, we'll do one." [WWD]
