After interviewing Litke's founder and designer, Catherine Litke, in February, it was a pleasure to see her and her work on Wednesday. Litke's S/S '15 fashion show at the Great Jones Street Gallery combined mod looks from the 1960's, especially those in The Happy Island (1972), with the quilted patterns of American rustic.
The narrow space was lined in tan-checkered fabric, reminiscent of a 1920's bathing tent. Wave-like ambient music by Heathered Pearls comforted viewers, and complemented Ms. Litke's use of hand-loomed, thin, cotton shirts, and thick, silk skirts. The rosy-cheeked models were displayed like sculptures, allowing the viewer to appreciate the intricate stitching on each garment. Below, you can view the work as well. What do you think?
