A  fashion decree from the queen of digital print –

proclaims the four E-s:

explore, experiment, expand, evolve  …

and Mary Katrantzou has done just that

for a/w 2014.

designer Mary Katrantzou

Showing at London Fashion Week,

Ms. Katrantzou proves again that she is a creative par excellence.

Taking a step away from print and architectural elements,

her a/w collection features symbols as signifiers:

heraldic arms, scout badges, business strips

traffic signage, store adverts –

all combined in chaotic patterning.

The result: collage effect, innovative visuals

Fabrication choices allowed for

flow, movement, regal posture

a definite shift from previous collections.

which were structural in intent.

The over-all inspired chain mesh dresses

with metal hearts, rings and things

added an aspect of the unexpected.

Ms. Katrantzou continues to intrigue …
