Just when you thought the girl has only one skill, and she is going to sits on the digital era for a long time, Mary Katrantzou made your heart stop when her all out FW14 collection.
This Fall Winter collection is still dripping with overflowing detailing work. Busy, seems to be Mary’s favourite way of expressing her views, but moving away from her infamous digital prints is a big step for the young star. Yet, I find it is incredibly intelligent for her to start exploring possibilities outside her fast-selling printed pieces. Though risky, it is better to be described as a flowing stream instead of a pond of dead water. Yes?
Before anyone could comment that Katrantzou has only one way to the ladies’ heart, she knows she need to show the world why she is should be, and will be continue to be the talk of the town and a floor sell-out star. She is still amazing at mixing everything that has very little connection together and boom! Take a closer look at those embroideries, one can find everything under the sun – from road signs, gaming icons, logos to floral patterns, Katrantzou mixes them well and turns it into a gourmet feast.
Employing a multitude of embroidery techniques and texture to create the outstanding liveliness of her mixture, it is refreshing to see what is hidden in Katrantzou’s mind, and how she strikes a balance.
So sit tight, and enjoy the new sensation Mary Katrantzou will be bringing into the stores this FW14.
