a special thanks to the following
for their precious collaboration:
New Line Cosmetic di Vito Biondi
Erdem Moralioglu’s beautiful, ethereal prints are completely dreamy. Bringing a new bold modernity to floral prints, his playful use of lace and embroidery add a beautiful elegance to the precious classics that he creates each season. Having won an accolade of awards, including the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Forward and Collection of the Year, the label also has a huge celebrity following ranging figures as diverse as Michelle Obama to style icon Chloe Sevigny and young Brits like Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller.
One of London’s new rising stars, greek born Mary Katrantzou has us hypnotised with her bold, graphic prints. Gaining immediate attention for her perfume bottle inspired prints, the more organic forms for her summer line took the impact of the tromp l’oeil style prints and perfectly juxtaposed them with detailed crystal embellishments; highlighting the craftsmanship involved in making each piece. Mary describes the woman that she designs for as having ” a liberated spirit and a strong sense of style”, two qualities that we think would look fabulous when accessorised with any one of her unique creations!
Here Silvano Vangi and Ania Arcaini, wearing one of Mary’s blown glass print creations, pose with Mary in her Paris showroom.
Finely combining fabrics such as crepe, satin, jersey and popeline, Dutch twin sisters of Spijkers & Spijkers created a collection of loose fit dresses inspired by the night sky, its constellations the luxurious and erotic world of Pandora’s box.
