Katie Eary – LCM SS15




The Katie Eary SS15 show was yet another trip down memory lane, chiming with the retro trend that has been so prominent this season but rendered as  a nostalgic statement of high-camp hippie rodeo; neon prints and wild frontier silhouettes, merged with the bold impact of streetwear and the trashy-glam of East London.

Whilst some designers have tried to tread the line between the seasons, this collection was unashamedly rooted in summer with a technicolour palette, peace signs and pale denim jeans. The collection had a beautiful balance for the most part, but sometimes the combination of acid wash and print bordered into costume, and the fringing occasionally felt like an unnecessary addition.


All in all, the style statement packed a punch and the aesthetic was committed, even when overboard. Eary continues to wow with the sheer impact of her design and the ever-changing sphere of influences she pulls from; with this collection, Summer has truly arrived.
