Mary Katrantzou took an ornate yet whimsical approach to her inventive prints, finding inspiration in household objects. Clothes hangers were arranged on a pale jade dress, while old-fashioned rotary dials dotted a heavy silk shift dress with a billowing chiffon cape. The designer also worked with the embroidery house Lesage, which resulted in some fantastical creations, such as hundreds of yellow eraser-tipped pencils sewn onto the tulip-shaped skirt of a silk dress, and sparkling sequins and crystals in graduating shades of blue for a bolero jacket. Katrantzou also worked her prints as intarsia designs on sweater dresses. Standouts included an icy blue one dotted with tiny crystals, and a moss green version laced with silk embroidery, sequins and crystals.
