Mary Katrantzou’s Detailed Prints

Mary Katrantzou’s Detailed Prints

Mary Katrantzou, AW11, London.

It’s always good to revisit collections when you’ve got more time to appreciate the work that has gone into the details and the fabrics, and some collections stand out because they have the depth to withstand deeper scrutiny. The bright colours and lampshade silhouettes used for the recent Mary Katrantzou collection help to dazzle from far away, but the fact that the prints hold so many stories gives the collection a more interesting dynamic. 

There is a fantastic interplay between the 2D and the 3D in this collection, the real and the unreal as little scenes are vignetted between seamlines, and flowers grow off the body in the form of beading and jewels. One element that is especially surreal is the teapot which seems to be sitting inside the stomach of one of the models.
