Show Review: Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Mary Katrantzou is having a fantastic year. It’s only February, and the designer has already won a BFC Fashion Forward award, and collaborated with both Topshop and Longchamp. Not a bad start to 2012! It’s easy to see why Ms. Katranzou is in such high demand. Her uncanny ability to make her busy digital prints flatter a woman’s body has put her on the map as one of the most promising emerging designers out there. So you can understand the excitement over her Fall 2012 collection, and Miss Mary certinaly did not disappoint.

At a glance, Katrantzou’s patterns may look like a modern interpretation of the classic scarf print. But how could you simply glance at these clothes? Upon further inspection, these prints are more remarkable. Katrantzou says her prints were inspired by everday items: coat hangers, rotaries, no.2 pencils, typewriter keyboards, spoons, wrist watches. The designer transformed these everyday effects into exquisite works of art.

Classic silhouettes with modern predelictions anchor these elaborate patterns. Shift and column dresses boast molded peplums. Asymmetrical sea anenome-like layered babydoll dresses billow out behind the models. Katrantzou also offers a few of her signature sculpted lampshade pieces, with architectural, structured sleeves and skirts.

Katrantzou takes her trademark digital prints to a new medium: knits. She serves up a selection of knits that seamlessly blend in with the silken prints.

What is there left to say? This collection is gorgeous. It’s hard to imagine clothes like these come from a woman who often wears all black. It will really be a pleasure to see how her brand develops over the next two years. She already churns out stunning collection after stunning collection, and her BFC sponsorship will only make Katrantzou’s brand stronger. I, for one, cannot wait to see what she brings us next season!
