Possibly the most fabulous prints seen throughout the whole of London Fashion Week last year – Mary Katrantzou had us hooked from day one.
Just last week saw us raving about Greek-born, London-based designer Mary Katrantzou’s spring summer collection , which is available at Brown Thomas (pictured) by the way.
The 1000+ a dress designer collection, though very desirable, is not within everyones reach, so shout hip hip harray for her second collection for Topshop which hits stores on 14 February!
Taken from the vibrant prints used in her S/S10 show, Mary was inspired by the spiralling beauty of artisanal blown glass. The bright turquoise ‘Persian Drum’, and sophisticated cream and brown ‘Zebra’ prints swirl across two simple silk shift dresses and matching silk scarves.
For a limited time only in Topshop’s Oxford Circus store, the designs will be available as seven exclusive nail designs that Mary has worked on together with nail salon of the moment WAH for an all-out print and colour explosion.
Mary studied at Rhode Island School of Design before transferring to Central St Martins to complete a BA and then an MA in Textile Design. With sponsorship from Topshop New Generation funding, she has shown her own mainline collection during London Fashion Week for the last four seasons and is currently working on her fifth collection to be shown the Topshop Show Space for AW11.
The capsule collection features print silk dresses £120 and printed silk scarves £50.
