Katie Eary’s ‘flamingo massacre’ collection was a highlight of the Monday LC:M shows. And we want a leopard print skateboard.
What’s the must have accessory for SS14? Katie Eary’s pink and black leopard print skateboards. To be worn with the young starlet’s crazy cool ‘flamingo massacre’ collection if you dare. Today’s offering from Eary was perhaps her best yet. Last season’s fuchsias and purples morphed into red and pink clashing hues, and male and female models sashayed down the catwalk in flamingo and leopard print, swimwear and highlighter-bright Nikes.
The show was certainly a favourite among the LC:M crowds. Reggie Yates, the ubiquitous David Gandy and Tinie Tempah looked dapper on the front row, while bloggers, photographers and journalists stood and craned their necks to get a glimpse (or a Vine) of the unisex spring/summer action.
The biggest cheer of the day, however, was reserved for Ms Eary herself, who dashed out and sprinted down the runway at the close of the show, all dip-dyed pink hair and fizzing energy. This is a woman at the height of her powers. She plays the menswear scene at their own game and nails it every time. Total girl crush.
