Step Into Mary Katrantzou's Metallic Midsummer Night's Eve
Swapping last season's pink pyramid catwalk for a mirrored, metallic blue universe, Mary Katrantzou showed her Spring/Summer 2016 collection on Sunday. Presenting an army of intricately embellished dresses, we fear for the well-worked, nimble fingers of her atelier. Floral floaty dresses in a metallic colour palette with pops of fierce bright yellow showed that Mary's signature skills with print and colour aren't tiring any time soon. Red, plum, and blue rippled cocktail dresses had stylists' eyes popping whilst Mary introduced raw tassel edges on skirts giving a welcome new dimension to her usual polished appeal. Ribbon chokers featured around necks, and printed buckle boots were the investment piece next season. Beauty tied in well with coloured mascara being applied to the centre of eyes, slick, silky hair, and nude lips. There's one thing we can't doubt, and that's Mary's commitment to Sparkle Motion.
