DESIGNER TO KNOW: Katie Eary
Sprinkle a little LSD in the food of the British military and your result will be the insane, military inspired designs by Brit, Katie Eary. From feather to chains and studs to lace, Eary utilizes many feminine pegged elements to create classically tailored menswear pieces. For her Fall 2009 collection, Eary took traditional and formal military silhouettes and infused them with street grunge/glam. The result? Studded skinny jeans, skirted military jackets, sequinced headgear and my personal favorite, feather doused pullovers! As if her designs weren’t great enough, I am particularily drawn to the makeup on the models. Oh, how crack-head of you Katie!
