The Explosive Prints of Mary Katrantzou

The Explosive Prints of Mary Katrantzou

London-based Mary Katrantzou’s F/W 2017 runway show was a rich and eclectic mix of clashing floral prints. Minimal silhouettes combine with maximalist embellishments. Her thematic collections always feature something new, something innovative and something that people will appreciate for its intelligent design aesthetic, as well as its function. Each print is designed around the garment, and the garment simultaneously around the print.

As Mary states on her website:

“Print can be as definitive as a cut or a drape and allows a woman to filter beauty found in design, in a subversive way. All my prints are constructed through digital technology. Digital print allows me to experiment with print in a way that fine art and other methods could not. It opens up a huge spectrum for possibility; I can create possibility out of impossibility, surrealism out of realism and both vice versa.”
