Mary Katrantzou Spring Summer 2014

I expected to be greeted with an onslaught of overwhelming prints for Mary Katrantzou Spring Summer 2014, but things are slightly toned down this season and I like it. The brogue shoe print at the beginning was great, and her other patterns where small scale or had some solid areas and they appeared to be easier on the eye. Despite a nice shoe, I’m still not sure how relevant this is going to be in the near future. Can you just do print? Jonathan Saunders couldn’t. Liberty’s could, but they had a store to keep them in business when florals out off-trend.

I love…

an outfit that looks like a giant brogue.

that Mary Katrantzou’s prints seem a lot more palatable this season. This is nice

the closest thing to simple on this catwalk.

I loathe…

when women look like cupcakes.

    That second look reminds me of Ghesquiere’s scuba collection at Balenciaga, just sayin.

    Also, who, where would wear looks 3 and 4 and in what context? Planet fashion can be so baffling sometimes.

    Her aesthetic may not appeal to everyone, but it is evident she has some talent.

    She definitely has talent, but I think she should stick to prints and not fashion design.
