Mary Katrantzou Fall 2011 | London Fashion Week
Mary Katrantzou showed her trademark digital prints (that she would like to push them to the limit, as she said backstage) on luxe materials such as satin, velvet and chiffon inspired by the writer Diana Vreeland’s “Garden In Hell” apartment. The highlights were the intricately detailed Chinoiserie prints — some looking as if they were copied straight from Chinese vases — which were transferred onto hard, structured tops, lampshade skirts and leggings. Mary Katrantzou imagined a new modern woman surrounded by Fabergé eggs, Meissen porcelain, Ming vases and cloisonné enamel. She was clearly inspired by Diana Vreeland (as said before), Babe Paley and the Duchess of Windsor. Of course, as Greeks we are all proud of our girl! Well done!
