First look: Katie Eary for River Island Design Forum

Ooh, words cannot describe how excited we are for this collection!

River Island are getting ready to launch their highly anticipated Design Forum collaboration with young and successful designer, Katie Eary.

The new collection will be launched during London Fashion Week on February 14th.

Ranging from €20-€150 there is something to suit everyone’s budget from vivacious colours and must-have accessories in a collection of eighteen pieces.

Katie has been described as a designer to watch and has even worked on Kanye West’s fashion label.

Katie says her inspiration for the collection came from a female version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: “Except in my story it wasn’t Johnny Depp, it was my muse (the strong woman) on a crazy hallucinatory journey through the desert.  I then went on to design looks for her while she was on this journey. It all became very ‘Tribal Dipped in Gold’.”
