It looks like I will be churning out London Fashion Week posts for a few more days as even after it ended, there are still some shows I haven’t written about. God knows I have tried, but sometimes, you just can’t post 10 articles in a row without getting fashion fatigue. So I am going to spread them out. I also wanted to use my friend Christopher James‘ photos rather than mine for the last few posts, as I really love them – so I am waiting for him to sort through his mountain of images.
When like me you are obsessed with interiors as much, if not more than with clothes, a collection inspired by architecture is pretty much the Holy Grail. Mary Katranzou dove deep into old issues of Architectural Digest and World of Interiors to design this collection that blew my mind into a million tiny little pieces.
Why not wear a room rather than live in it? If we wear stripes, flowers and dots, why not use mundane every day motifs and make them magical, spectacular?
On the runway at Mary Katranzou, the models became buildings floating in the old Eurostar Terminal in Waterloo. This is the type of magical moment I longed for.
