Katie Gallagher Hits the Beach
Katie Gallagher‘s designs have often been pegged as “vamp,” but that doesn’t mean she shies away from the sun. Over the weekend, the young designer debuted a ten-piece swimwear capsule with an intimate presentation during Miami Swim Week. Gallagher reinterpreted some of her signature bodysuits—often best-sellers in her ready-to-wear collections—in waterproof materials, “so it came to me naturally,” she told Style.com. Highlights here included convertible wrapping tops, slightly retro full-coverage briefs, and sleek maillots scattered with cutouts—all offered in a neutral black-and-white palette. Gallagher added that she will include lots of powdery carnation pinks in her forthcoming Spring ’14 lineup. Despite facing a lizard in her shoe and a cockroach in her hotel room during her Florida stay, Gallagher definitely plans to do more swimsuits in the future.
