A few days ago I was invited to the presentation of Mary Katrantzou's new collection and I will admit I was blown away by the delicacy of the patterns. The colours are subtle, they reminded me of the early morning shades. The architecture of the pieces is simple but effective: as expected in Mary Katrantzou collections, the motifs, almost paintings, are key. The fabrics are strong enough to maintain a classic bearing, most of the outfits are knee-length and high waist based, my favourite combination, very 50's. It is a beautiful collection.
