Most of you may not have heard of 25 year old British menswear designer Katie Eary but her "eerie" designs caught my eye last month when I posted the "Iron Maiden" story feat. Daria. I read the credits on every page and her name came up a couple of times. She is the maker of those killer chain epaulettes that were featured in the story and that I am now dying for.
I decided to do a bit more research on her and all I can say is, she is sick! And Maury definitely agrees!She's a master tailor, an incredible milliner and her avante guarde accessories are brilliant! I can totally see Marilyn Manson wearing one of her get-ups. As for me, I'd kill for her gold chain epaulettes, even the full armor gold iron epaulettes featured below. Just imagine them with a regular black BF blazer, or on some shredded t-shirt! I feel a DIY project coming up..I think I'd be bold enough to even sport one of her wicked hats! God, what a great time to be a man!
Katie's work has been featured in Paris Vogue, POP, Dazed and Confused and others. For more info on her visit www.katieeary.co.uk. Hope you guys dig her stuff too!
