Think print-blocking and florals, and chances are you will think of Mary Katrantzou. If you have been listening to my ramblings on Twitter you would know that I have an almost unhealthy obsession with Katrantzou's intricate prints, which are first created digitally and replicated for a numerous amount of times. The Greek designer, recently awarded with the Emerging Designer Award from the British Fashion Award, created a wider collection for Topshop full of structured dresses, leggings and trousers.
"It's very exciting to work with Topshop for our third range together," said Katrantzou, when asked about the collaboration. "They've been so supportive of my work from the very beginning and this range will be the most ambitious one we've done and the most fun. My idea behind the collaboration was to design for the Topshop girl a range that is as close to the aesthetic of my mainline as possible, with great control over the quality of design and production. I can't wait to see the Topshop girls in the bowl dresses and for the most daring to see them try the print on print layering!"
The capsule collection, which will be available in Topshop stores tomorrow, is definitely something worth investing in. Unless you're Nusardel who absolutely loathes the repetition of floral prints in Katrantzou's collections.
The assemble almost reminds me of those leggings and dresses from the Versace for H&M collection, but then again Versace didn't invent floral prints or prints so my argument is invalid.
As always. If you squirt your eyes just for a little it almost resembles a jumpsuit. Visual orgasm much?
Boom. Surfer-chic done to the perfection with things like prints that resembled tsunami waves, geometric shapes and tamed floral prints. But I'm not going to tell you to wear it while you're surfing because that sounds too cliché and straight from Seventeen Magazine.
This is, like, the highest form of print-blocking! What is reality?!? What is air?!?!? What is Nutella, my creys?!?!?!? The whole general point is that Mary Katrantzou is a brilliant human being, alright? Now I'm back to my geometry homework that I've been working on for three hours. High academic expectations these days.
