Spring - Summer 2017

New Classical. For Spring/Summer 2017 Mary Katrantzou looked introspectively to Greece, the country of her birth. Exploring its rich history, mythology and culture, she dug deep into her own work. This collection is an archaeological exploration, unearthing the classics of Katrantzou. 

The ancient civilisation of the Minoans gave initial inspiration. Their culture, as we experience it through their artefacts, is dominated by the female. Feminine deities proliferated, women priests officiated; taking centre stage on Minoan frescos, intricately fashioned and decorated. The earliest European civilisation made the earliest fashion statement and Katrantzou reinforces this within the collection.
