London Fashion Week Review: Mary Katrantzou
Queen Amidala on a country vacay.
Mary Katrantzou's LFW show could not have come sooner. After a relatively uninspiring day, her neat collection was received with rapturous applause in the Topshop-sponsored space at London fashion Week. Queen of the digital print, this season she presented something new in the form of geometric prints taken from bank notes and postage stamps (of all things).
The vibe was Queen Amidala on a country vacay, and a new silhouette was explored: there was still an emphasis on structure, but this season the fabric folded and hung from the body in an A-line shape, those body-con dresses long forgotten.
Evening gowns created from Swarovski crystal-mesh fused with silk brocades, featured patterns that swirled and sparkled under the lights. This is her best collection yet.
