Today I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon shooting behind the scenes images at Katie Gallagher’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection press preview at The Roxy Hotel, in Tribeca.
Entitled “Veiled”, the monochromatic collection was influenced by Gothic architecture, stained glass, Harry Clarke illustrations, and Gallagher’s own very first collection “Veil” from Spring/Summer 2010.
I’ve photographed Katie’s shows every season for the last 6 years, and it was even more exciting to see the line than usual, and to spend multiple hours noticing the subtle details, and craftsmanship of the garments.
It’s been wonderful to see Katie grow as a designer over the years, and finally be recognized for all her hard work. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for her!
Cynthia Vincent previews are always my favorite, because they are guaranteed to feature bright, colorful clothing in materials I love like velvet, silk, and amazing sheer fabrics.
It was snowing the day of the preview, which honestly, has become beyond annoying. But I found myself wishing Fall would hurry along after looking at so many great jackets and sweaters. I looove shearling!
Sweaters are always stand out pieces of each season’s collection for me. Cynthia Vincent sweaters are some of the softest I’ve ever felt.
The great thing is each season, the styles continue to stay fresh, and are re-interpreted in new styles and patterns.
I found myself especially drawn to this sweater cape.
It’s so slouchy, it was hard to get a great photograph showing you all of the detail. It really caught my eye, based on the buckles, the length, and the fact that it has fitted sleeves. So many sweater capes are short, making the wearer look stumpy. This one is long, and adds shape and warmth while also remaining lean.
It’s always the little details, like stitching, that catch my eye:
