Katie Eary SS14 The Flamingo Massacres - London Collections Men

OH WOW! Wake up London Collections!

Katie Eary's flamingo massacre collection was the brightest and loudest of all, to say the least. Let's just add in some bright pink, magenta, bright orange, screaming cheetah prints and some flamingo heads in repeat pattern and you can maybe, just maybe get an idea of what we witnessed.

It was a fun, stand-outish collection, from your usual London Collections schedule. Taking influence from Irvine Welsh's seminal novel Maribou Stalk Nightmares, the collection tells the story of a hallucinatory and primitive gender war, all based on man's lustful, but hateful fascination with the beautiful Flamingo. The bird that somehow seems to beautiful to live.

The show tells a violent and disturbed story of death and desire under a beating sun, a world where the strongest will kill even what they love to stay on top. 

Slightly dramatic but nonetheless disturbing, I believe Katie Eary's collection had its strong points and key pieces (some of which I captured on camera and you can see below) and I couldn't end the review, without mentioning the ├╝bercool customised skateboards that the models were wearing.
Oversexed and under dressed with pink wigs, they're surreal male fantasy creatures that seem to have been plucked from the sex starved minds of the hunters. Desert lolitas decked out in pornographic party outfits.
