CLOSE-UP: Mary Katrantzou Fall/Winter 13/14

Mary Katrantzou‘s new collection is a lot more mellow than her previous efforts. It feels more serene and the colours are duller, the prints actually has a Dries van Noten vibe. But every season no matter how amazing her print work is, the shapes and silhouette of her clothes always take the back seat. For Mary, it is as if there is a rule: “Prints First.” and the entire garment work around a visual. The shapes might not be flattering but the prints will always get the critics and fashion watchers floored.
