To helm its first fashion show yesterday in Milan, IKEA enlisted Katie Eary, a creative lead of Kanye West’s 2011 eponymous collection.

Eary, whose knack for print-based menswear gained her a Jaden Smith editorial, as well as multiple gigs dressing GOOD Music rappers, applies her talent to a vibrant men’s textile collection called Giltig for the Swedish furniture brand.

We presume the womenswear included in the show will be produced and sold elsewhere than IKEA, but the show was definitely great exposure for all of Eary’s design talents!

Eary tells IKEA Today Gitlig, which includes aprons shopping bags and dinnerwear, is a cross between her younger brothers and Johnny Depp from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

The collection will be available at IKEA in Spring 2016.
