Steel Cut: Katie Gallagher Jewelry
RISD grad Katie Gallagher is slowly making a name for herself with her gothic, body-con label that caught the attention of Lady Gaga and Daphne Guinness just a few seasons ago. At her most recent show in New York, it was her new jewelry offerings that really struck a high note. The capsule collection of black and steel earcuffs and handlets, made in collaboration with jewelry designer Megan Isaacs, was intended to “make parts of the body into ethereal shapes,” explains Gallagher. (One of our favorites is the statement handlet, pictured above.) It’s her first foray into jewelry, and luckily, it looks like there could be more where that came from. “I think it would be special to collaborate with jewelry designers that I admire and that fit the concepts of my collection from season to season,” she reports. Also worth a mention: The young designer is beefing up her offerings with a new diffusion line, called Katie by Katie Gallagher. The range, which features core separates like tank dresses, sheer jackets, and leggings ($150-$250), is intended for customers looking for a more accessible and wearable way to try Gallagher’s aesthetic on for size. The jewelry collection ($170-$280) and secondary line will be available early next month when she launches her e-shop on KatiebyKatieGallagher.com.
