Mary Katrantzou Lovin'

          Mary Katrantzou , a new bright talent of London Fashion Week, is this month launching two collaborations- one with Topshop and the other with Longchamp. Rhode Island School of Design educated Mary, originating from Athens, won the Emerging Talent - Ready-to-Wear award at the British Fashion Awards last year and has worked previously for Sophia Kokosalaki, amongst other designers.

          Katrantzou’s collaboration with Topshop sees the reveal of a 10-piece capsule, dropped online and in selected stores on February 17th. The collection is an explosion of prints; a mixture of oriental-esque florals and pretty swirls and shapes. The colours and silhouettes are simply divine, and she definitely doesn’t disappoint when it comes to showcasing her trademark piece- “a dress inspired by the filtered beauty in design, mapped around the female figure.”
         The collection is a myriad of shapes, featuring straight-cut tops, slim-fitting trousers and structured dresses. Rubber, cotton, silk and chiffon are some of the fabrics she’s used to create these stunning pieces.
         This collection is the epitome of spring-feeling patterns and feminine styles. Forget fashioning this spring with delicate and dusty floral pastels- take inspiration from Mary and spring into this season with bold, yet feminine florals.  
         The collection has, as of now, nearly entirely sold out, but keep checking Topshop for when they come back in stock! Make sure you save up for, and get your own piece of floral couture, appropriate for the highstreet, and guaranteed to make everyone else jealous!
