Resort 2016

For Resort 2016, Mary Katrantzou explores the merging of the two paradigms. Embracing a fascination with the autonomous qualities of pure form and colour, this pursuit of optical phenomena is juxtaposed with traditional botanical illustrations from 18th century studies of plant morphology, herbals and pharmacopeia. A symbiosis of geometric lines and hand painted flora and the delineation of both, form the thematic entity that inspires the imagery, fabrication and silhouette in this collection.
