LFW: MARY KATRANTZOU

23 Feb

It’s not every day that a runway show makes you shout “Yes! I want to dress like a labyrinthine hedge!” but guess what – Mary Katrantzou’s Fall 2012 collection has done exactly that. Riding in on a tsunami of drah-mah and digital print, Katrantzou displayed her usual attention to form, artfully marrying rigidly structured shoulders and cinched waists with slouchy pants and billowing chiffon skirts. Peplums, corsets, funnel necks and godet skirts were there too, used as the vehicle for this season’s party princess to show off their prints: a veritable kaleidoscope of spoons, typewriters, unicorns, and pencils. The main departure from previous collections was the palette: while maintaining her usual all-inclusive approach, Katrantzou eschewed chromatic chaos for a more refined look, sticking almost to a single spin of the colour-wheel per garment (!). Indeed, some of the collection’s most striking dresses were those delicately rendered in beautifully muted hues of mushroom, ivory and baby blue. Think that will keep me away from the canary yellow pants? Think again.
