#NYFW: Katie Gallagher Fall/Winter 2017
Katie Gallagher introduced her 16th collection titled “Hallow” at the Projective Space for Fall/Winter 2017. Hallow is set in New England during autumn, drawing inspiration in men’s military apparel- with the MA-1 bomber jacket as the pinnacle. With iterations of the bomber jacket that Katie Gallagher has included in past collections, the structure and masculinity of the piece have been transformed through the use of unlikely materials: think lightweight fabrics like tulle and lace.
We’ve seen as a constant the attention to detail and craftsmanship in each garment – in particular, our eyes continue to be drawn to the delicate lines and adornments that make Katie Gallagher leggings unique and offer a striking contrast between fitted tights and more airy, triangular silhouettes.
A cherry (or candy corn, if we’re talking about one of the designer’s favorite sweets!) on top of the presentation was the personal touch that we’ve seen in Katie Gallagher’s NYFW showings time and time again — from her role in creating the show invitation and music mix (both with Wil Adamy) and approach to articulating the essence of a new collection. This time, using words by Louis Gluck, “All Hallows,” 1968:
Even now this landscape is assembling.
The hills darken. The oxen
sleep in their blue yoke,
the fields having been
picked clean, the sheaves
bound evenly and piled at the roadside
among cinquefoil, as the toothed moon rises:
This is the barrenness
of harvest or pestilence.
And the wife leaning out the window
with her hand extended, as in payment,
and the seeds
distinct, gold, calling
Come here, little one
And the soul creeps out of the tree.
