London Fashion Week: Mary Katrantzou AW13

Mary Katrantzou is the queen of vivid, explosive prints, so imagine my surprise when I saw a sleek, refined and more subdued colour palette in her autumn/winter 2013 collection. Her signature hyper real prints were still there in spades, albeit in a subtle, restrained form. Soft, almost fragile prints contrasted with sharp, almost jutting shapes making for a strong statement and distinctive silhouette. Pieces walked the line between delicate and explosive perfectly. Passive greys and blues work so well for the autumn/winter season, particularly with the colour-heavy collections shown thus far at London Fashion Week. Technically complex, the fabric manipulation through intricate folds and pleats combined with lashings of embossed leather are stunning. Another breathtakingly beautiful collection from Ms Katrantzou.
