FLAMINGO MASSACRES: PRESS RELEASE

RISING OUT OF THE UNLIKELY INSPIRATIONS OF THE WILDS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA, THE ACID HOUSE SCENE AND THE FEVERED IMAGINATIONS OF A EDINBURGH FOOTBALL THUG COMES FLAMINGO MASSACRES, THE SPRING/SUMMER’14 COLLECTION FROM KATIE EARY.

TAKING INFLUENCE FROM IRVINE WELSH’S SEMINAL NOVEL MARABOU STALK NIGHTMARES THE COLLECTION TELLS THE STORY OF A HALLUCINATORY AND PRIMITIVE GENDER WAR, ALL BASED ON MANS LUSTFUL, BUT HATEFUL FASCINATION WITH THE BEAUTIFUL FLAMINGO. THE BIRD THAT SOMEHOW SEEMS TOO BEAUTIFUL TO LIVE.

THE MENSWEAR TAKES ITS CUE FROM THE HUNTERS, WITH ITS STRONG SILLHOUETTES, VIVID LEOPARD PRINT, FLAMINGO PRINTED, COROCDILE SILK JACQUARD, MILITARY TROUSERS AND AIR MAX 90′S PRESENTING THEM AS VIOLENT FLAMBOYANT OVERLORDS OF THEIR ANCIENT AND DANGEROUS SURROUNDINGS.

IN A STARK CONTRAST, THE WOMEN ARE THE FLAMINGOS. THE ALMOST-TOO-BEAUTIFUL SIRENS OF THE SAFARI, WHO IN A PLACE AS WILD AND AS PRIMEVAL AS THIS DONT SEEM QUITE REAL. THEY’RE THE HOT PINK MIRAGES IN BABY DOLL DRESSES, SILK CHIFFON, RUBBERIZED LACE AND SLINKY SWIMWEAR.

THE SHOW TELLS A VIOLENT AND DISTURBED STORY OF DEATH AND DESIRE UNDER A BEATING SUN, A WORLD WHERE THE STRONGEST WILL KILLL EVEN THAT WHAT THEY LOVE TO STAY ON TOP.

 

WORDS CLIVE MARTIN.
