Katie Eary, the rising star of London Fashion Week, has partnered with British high-street giant River Island for a new stylish 18-piece collection.
Inspired from the American author Hunter S. Thompson written book ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’, the clothing range is punched with sheer lightweight fabrics, tribal designs and vibrant colours.
Scheduled to be available for sale from February 17, 2014 onwards, the line includes animal-print adorned maxi dresses, skirts with thigh-high slits, long T-shirts and wide-sleeved blouses.
The collaboration is a part of the London-based label’s Design Forum initiative, which gives budding designers an opportunity to showcase their collections before a much wider audience.
An alumnus of Royal College of Art, Katie Eary has earlier worked with famous denim manufacturer Levi’s before setting up her own eponymous label.
Founded in 1948, River Island operates over 300 stores in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Russia, Holland, Poland, Belgium and the Middle East.
Published in 1971, ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ is a story of a journalist and his attorney, who descend on a journey to chase the ultimate American dream through Las Vegas. The novel was later adapted into a full-fledged American film, with the same title, directed by Terry Gilliam.
