Christopher Kane gives London cabs a makeover!

Cabs in London just got a whole lot more stylish with a makeover from top designer and all-round favourite, Christopher Kane. The patriotic taxi-wrap references Kane's galaxy print from his popular 2011 Resort collection that was seen on everyone from starlets to First Ladies to supermodels, and everything in between.

The cabs are sponsored by Vodafone. Any lucky person who manages to flag a Chris Kane taxi will be able to charge their phone in it as well as pay their fare via text.

This is only the latest in a string of successes for the Scottish designer having recently won Vogue's Designer Fashion Fund which seeks to give homegrown talent the support to establish global brand success. Kane said of the honour, "The black cab is such an iconic part of London's landscape. I am honoured to have the opportunity to put my own distinctive stamp on it. Looking forward to seeing one on the street and hailing it down!"
