Print Paradise: Mary Katrantzou

London is full of creative energy, especially, in fashion. Let’s take a closer look at a designer undeniably mastering the art of using prints in a fresh innovative way, Mary Katrantzou. The placement of the prints is immaculate and each season it’s a new themed spectacle. Her fan-base is of all ages, shapes & sizes and the niche she is exploring is only bringing a larger audience.

This is her most popular look for the 2014 Spring season:

The storyline for the collection is SHOES – girls’s most prized possession.

One of my favorite collections up to date is Spring 2011. Mary Katrantzou used interior design as an inspiration to this line. The models  were wearing trompe l’oeil images of rooms with chandelier necklaces & fabric extensions serving as curtains.

For this Fall/Winter season, there was a heavily-discussed diversion that everyone saw in Katrantzou’s style. It’s much darker and sultry than her previous collections.

However, you can hear Mary Katrantzou’s defense and explanation of the collection in this interview. She doesn’t think there’s a diversion and this collection is still very much HER in the aesthetic sense. She talks about her Fall 2013 RTW Collection and touches quiet a bit on inspiration, design process and industry secrets  in a very welcoming & candid manner.

Her designs are definitely dominating my Prints Pinterest board. I might even have to edit some out!
