Autumn - Winter 2012
A pencil, a spoon, a typewriter: for Autumn/Winter 2012 Mary Katrantzou discovers beauty in the everyday, elevating the mundane to the sublime. A simple concept becomes dazzling in execution. Lesage embroidered crystals and pearls cluster a foam-frothed bathtub, pencils jump from print to startling reality. Typewriter keys coil from bustle to basque and forty metres of chiffon swirl around the body. Consistently pushing her visionary technique forward, Mary Katrantzou creates a homage to pure colour, potent print, and the wildest reaches of the human imagination. This is a kaleidoscopic, multicoloured vision of the modern woman.
