Mary Katrantzou‘s is a collection that I look forward to each season. This London Fashion Week, each of the dresses in this collection were made to encapsulate a sort of ‘hotel room atmosphere‘; open verandas and windows into an eighties-inspired pop art world. Shoulder pieces were actually structured using curtain-hanging pelmet techniques, and long, wicker-looking trains were pieced to resemble chair-backs at the Café de Flore.
Every garment had a way of putting my tongue to my cheek; necklaces featured parts of chandeliers, or, where there were none, dresses had chandeliers printed directly onto the neckline or staircases refracted to form a graphic-looking necklace. What an artist!
