Overdue Designer Obsession: Katie Eary

This year has been a great one: from watching emerging trends to discovery of this amazing gem. It was an unexpected, but a pleasant discovery. Katie Eary is my inspiration of the year.

She took street fashion and twisted it with luxury. Skating and roaming around the streets never looked so glamorous. The best part is that Eary designs still have that raw edge. No matter how many furs are piled up on top of crocodile leather, it’s still very wearable and fits right in place that pop culture had open for her.

The video demonstrates that and more. I need not say more

Her SS 13 Collection is on a lighter note with baroque prints meshed with marine motifs.



Of course there’s something for the women as well

One day I hope to pull some of her garments for one of my shoots. It would be the best styling experience ever. Until then, I, among many others will scream of joy at my computer screen.

Prada SS 2012 Japanesque

Japanese fashion has been surrounding me lately. Even Prada shows its take on japanesque trends with the platform shoes you can see in the SS 2013 show. Thought I was never going to mention it, but I wore platform sneakers when I was 8: navy leather with black foam core sole and a touch of white detail. Seeing platforms on the runway brought me back nostalgia of my beloved shoes which I wore down to the ground.

I am, surprisingly, loving the crinkled socks the models are striding in. Platform shoes on top of the geisha sock look futuristic and comfy at the same time. The soft-leather socks continue from the platform of the shoe and create a boot, but with a light-weight feel. Poppy flower appliques are also among of my favorite details from the collection. The little flowers not only add a spin on a Baroque trend, but also add a cute factor to the look
