Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014



I have always had a soft spot for prints, and an even softer one for Mary Katrantzou. For her first resort collection, I was really excited to see that Katrantzou used her signature prints as a veritable collection of postcards from around the world. Along with her own photographs of high-rise apartment towers in São Paulo, Katrantzou captured snow-capped Swiss Alps, French flower fields, a Japanese bridge, an Italian vineyard, a Chinese fisherman, railway station arcades and so on. The vistas came mashed together in vivid color stories, at times layered with gorgeous embellishments, such as laser-cut Perspex squares placed in the windows of the apartment print, and floral sequins adding dimension to a yellow floral print.

Lest the bounty of visual effects turn into a frenzy, Katrantzou delivered it all on relatively clean shapes, such as playsuits, biker jackets, a sweatshirt and dresses with flowy skirts.

Love it.
