.016 / Mary Katrantzou FW11 : nostalgic yet stylish

The vivid printed Greek designer, Mary Katrantzou is her Fall Winter 2011 collection which is inspired by the late interior paintings of the 19th century French painters Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard. The prints are nostalgic with a sense of elegance. It is patently obvious that Mary finished her work after months of toil.

Some praise the collection is a combination of the elects from the fashion photography and fine art industry. I just cannot take my eyes off those dazzling paints which are so eye-catching indeed. What an engrossing collection it is. It is beyond dispute that Mary has tried her every endeavour the make the collection as better as it can be and it completely reveals Mary's calibre of matching different colours and paints together.

To match the luxurious collectibles that inspired these prints, Katrantzou borrowed silhouettes from the haute couture wardrobes of their imagined owners. (The names of legendary style icons like Diana Vreeland, Babe Paley, and the Duchess of Windsor were bandied around, though there was a bucket skirt shape that could have been in Armani's last Couture collection.) But, to be honest, the artificiality of these shapes scarcely felt like a remove from Spring's lamp shades.
