London Fashion Week: Mary Katrantzou

What to do when your rise to prominence in the fickle world of fashion is inseparable from bold colour and precision prints?

Well, if you’re Mary Katrantzou you bin the lot and do something totally different. But in her rush to move on from the tropes that made her name, Katrantzou threw the baby out with the bathwater as her exacting and abstracting pattern placement was dispensed with for more painterly and monochrome prints and awkward asymmetry. If she had attempted just one of those themes, the evolution (which we can only applaud Katrantzou for) would have seemed less jarring.

In short Queen Mary’s crown may have slipped somewhat but perhaps it’ll all make sense this time next year.
