Mary Katrantzou: Spring 2014 RTW

Milan Fashion Week may be in full swing but before I jump on that ship its time to rewind back to London and take a look at one of my favorite designers. If you have followed this blog for a while you may have seen I have posted quite a few times on collections by Mary Katrantzou and I do always seem to go on about how much I truly admire this woman’s work! And yet again I am at it again. I can never ever fault Katrantzou as her strong digital print designs always make her stand out from the rest as an unique designer. The collection started with a variety of pieces sporting prints related to shoes with eyelets and laces. As the collection went on there was a variety of ruffled baby-doll dresses showing the typical silhouette and structure that Katrantzou goes for. Overall not my favorite of Mary Katrantzou but again a brilliant collection and yet again I can’t wait to see what she is offering next time too!  Below are some pieces from the collection. What do you think of this collection? The rest of the collection can be viewed at Style.com.

Resort 2014:Mary Katrantzou

Prints have been a huge trend recently and one person responsible for its growth in popularity is London-based designer Mary Katrantzou who specializes in print. This week Katrantzou launched her first ever Resort collection and I must admit from what I have seen it is my favorite resort collection for 2014. The prints show inspiration from architecture aswell as floral prints and oriental inspiration being used. Similarly to her other collections these pieces will definitely make anyone stand out from the crowd with her beautiful colorful prints and unique structures. Below are some pieces from the collection. What do you think of this collection? The rest of the collection can be viewed at Style.com.

London Fashion Week:Mary Katrantzou Fall 2013 RTW

After gaining support from the British Fashion Council Mary Katrantzou has had a surge in success with her collection. Known for her prints, this collection is no exception showing what Katrantzou does best. This collection appears dark and the main prints in the collection show dark nights with streetlights and benches on a misty night. One thing that is very noticeable in this collection that contrasts with her previous collections is the lack in bold colour that we are used to seeing in her designs. This collection mainly has a monochrome palette running through it with colour taking a back-seat this time round and having the structure and shape of the designs as the main focus in order to take the collection forward. In my opinion this collection is not my favorite as one thing I have always liked about her was her use in bold coloured prints however obviously this is missing this time round which I believe brings the collection down however saying that I still think Mary Katrantzou is a fantastic designer and the attention she pays to prints is at a very high level. Here below are some shots from the runway show. Are you a fan of this collection ? To see all the runway shots go to Style.com. Credit to Style.com for images.

Spotted: Pick of the Month

As i told you before after i posted about this month’s Pick of the Month which was the very unique dress from Mary Katrantzou that i become obsessed with the designer i became a little excited when i spotted this exact dress wore by a celebrity. I seen it on LeeLee Sobieski (who is an actress) and she wore it to the opening night of the 2011 Metropolitan Opera Season in New York last night.  Below is a picture of the dress on her and from the runway.

London Fashion Week:Mary Katrantzou Spring 2012

Ever since i seen the Mary Katrantzou dress which is September Pick of the month i am really interested in the designer. The collections are unusual but creative and unique. The Spring 2012 collection previewed at London Fashion Week on Monday with again those crazy clashing prints. I love this collection not just the prints but the structure and the variety or different types of pieces is great. Credit to Style.com for images. Do you like this collection ?

Pick of the Month:September 2011

As fall kicks in one of the big trends this season is clashing prints and this is exactly what this dress is all about ! This dress may look odd with all its unusual prints which explains why this dress was the talk of London Fashion Week FW11 but i just love this dress its an eye-catching and bold dress that will stand out from the crowd. This dress is available on Net-a-Porter.com and is from the Mary Katrantzou collection. Hover over the image of the dress for the prices in dollars and pounds. Credit to Net-a-Porter for the images.
