Your Obsession With Mary Katrantzou's '50s Americana Starts Now
Mary Katrantzou is time-travelling back to fashionable '50s America, and she's taking us all with her. Against a helium balloon backdrop that looked as if it could have been constructed by Andy Warhol himself, models took to the foil runway looking rodeo-ready in leather blouses, pencil skirts, and star-spangled coats. For Autumn/Winter 2016, Mary's signature wild prints took the form of glittered hearts, coloured flames, and bright butterflies adorning cowboy shirts, leather skirts, and pretty lace dresses. As the collection went on, so did the glamour, as slim skirts were replaced with sheer pleated maxi skirts and gorgeously embroidered gowns that we expect many celebrity stylists will be fighting over. One thing's for sure — there'll be plenty of fashionistas (who were hung up on Prada's hot-rod collection) dreaming of a wardrobe bursting with tonight's looks. Read on to see the full collection, and then check the highlights from London Fashion Week so far.
