{Fashion Friday} Mary, Mary

Posted by Abbey on Jan 27, 2012

Enjoying the red carpet spotlight dressing Alexa Chung, Keira Knightley, Anna Delo Russo and Solange Knowles {quite a client list?} to name but a few the wonderful Greek designer, Mary Katrantzou, revered for her boldly colourful trompe l'oeil prints, digital mastery and highly structured creations, has recently been enjoying A list success, and whats more us mere mortals who also enjoy more than a bit of designer pretty will be able to grab a piece of Mary at none other than my high street favourite Topshop.

Word has it that Mary Katrantzou's collection is stunning with the pieces being "incredible" well I guess we will have to wait to see for ourselves when the collection hits the streets in February.

Mary's signature prints will be in evidence, as well as her beautiful Pheasant Dream dress, which absolutely every girl at Topshop HQ is lusting after.

Sounds to me like flashes of colour and and a dash of style perfection = high street heaven.

I first became aware of the "Princess of Design" after viewing a specially curated exhibition,  “The Art of Fashion”, which features a spectacular retrospective installation of internationally celebrated fashion designer Mary Katrantzou’s signature looks over the past four seasons since the label’s inception and also a preview of her Autumn Winter 2011 collection, coordinated by Brown Thomas, Dublin to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the foundation of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and I was hooked.

If you cannot wait for the high street version you can shop the collection on Net-A-Porter


have lovely weekend one and all.

    I saw the exhibition at Brown Thomas too, although I had not heard of Mary at the time, she seems to have just landed on the scene recently and seems to be quite versace inspired but I cannot wait for the Topshop Collab.
