Katie Eary presented her AW16 collection at the BFC show space, one of the official venues from LCM, consisting of a maze of seats shaping three straight catwalks making the models walk up and down a whitened room.
This AW16, Katie Eary – known for the use of bright colours and bold prints – took a new direction, focusing on a more subtle print-making than what we have seen in previous collections, and targeting a more sophisticated look. To achieve this, Eary used a more harmonious colour scheme in her prints together with `dark yet beautiful animal motifs´ that kept the edgy side to the prints. The use of silk for the prints running through this collection was also intentional, on an attempt to make the masculine classic candy stripes included in the print, more feminized and exotic.
On the look for this new more luxe and mature look, Eary chose an enriched colour palette rather than the usual over saturated. In addition, black became the key backdrop colour in this collection, a first time for the colour and print oriented designer.
