VICTORIA’S SECRET X MARY KATRANTZOU
Celebrating Victoria's Secret ultra-feminine and glamorous style, Mary Katrantzou was tapped to create a capsule collection for the American lingerie brand to showcase at the annual Victoria's Secret Runway Show, in store and online.
"My work is about perception and perspective and filtering beauty through design to allow women to stand out. I wanted to turn that on its head and look at the ‘foundation’ that we wear as women, underneath the clothes I usually design in my collections. Underwear is the first protective layer that has the ability to reinforce a woman’s confidence" - Mary Katrantzou.
Shown on the Victoria's Secret Runway as the Floral Fantasy section, the collection was styled with custom pieces made in the Mary Katrantzou atelier featuring embroidery encrusted lampshade skirts, shimmering crystal and sequin embellishments and transparent tulle dresses. The looks were finished with over-sized parachute wings and Mary Katrantzou for Atelier Swarovski jewellery.
The runway section featured celebrated models Gigi Hadid, Josephine Skriver, Jasmine Tookes, Alexina Graham, Devon Windsor, Duckie Thot, Liu Wen, Sui He, Leomie Anderson, Winne Harlow and Aiden Curtiss.
The models wore pieces from the collection that became available to shop as the runway show aired. Featuring 31 pieces in total, the in store range included bags, activewear, sleepwear and daywear as well as the lingerie seen on the runway.
Key to the joyful celebratory atmosphere that defines the Victoria's Secret runway show, models celebrated backstage with Mary Katrantzou.
