Art attack. The weird and wonderful world of modern art makes its mark on Katie Eary’sAW15 collection.
This season, the body was Eary’s battleground. Styled by Dazed fashion editor Elizabeth Fraser-Bell, sweaters – decorated with Jeff Koons balloon style inner organs, including ribs, intestines and brains – were worn over glam rock worthy metallic turtlenecks. Portrait artist Jenny Saville – known for her viscerally beautiful paintings of the body – inspired Eary’s hand-painted textures, in shades designed to mirror the colour of bumps, scrapes and bruises.
Like something straight out of 2003’s club kid cult classic Party Monster, models donned brightly coloured brain wigs with glittery, finger-painted style makeup by Dazed contributor Nami Yoshida. To complete the acid house Operation game look, trousers were laced with stitches of string.
