Mary Katrantzou Fall 2011 Collection Still Has Print Magic

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2011 Collection Lampshade Skirts

Mary Katrantzou’s Spring 2011 collection was a raving success. Her colorful multi-dimensional prints even won her the 2010 Swiss Textiles Award. So you might have thought to yourself, what will Katrantzou do for Fall 2011? Top herself, apparently. We could call last season… a little taste of what she can do.

While the lampshade skirts and trompe l’oeil prints felt all too familiar at times, Fall 2011 collection had so much more to offer. With great sensibility in mind, we now have separates; skirts, zip or blazer jackets, pants; and looser silhouettes. The prints and colors are still there, but now they are buyer friendly. My standing ovation has to go to the small fauna print pant-suit and the flowing purple strapless number towards the end.

The fabulous booties, by the way, some with Katrantzou’s Fall 2011 prints others in shine or glitter, are by Christian Louboutin.
