Mary Katrantzou Spring/Summer 2012

ENORMOUS fan of Mary, she is the kind-of new designer who has hit the scene hard. And we mean hard, starring in Vogue editorials and landing on fashion's most fashionable editors (ADL, for one). Her prints are out of this world, and I'm quite positive her last collection was one of the best of the season. She can pull off clashing like normal people pull off sweatpants and sneakers.  It's so risque but complimentary. With her prints, she chose to go more abstract this time around as opposed to structured that was last season. I prefer structured, as abstract can get messy and cheap looking. 

She really played the floral trend with a runway full of flowers and three toned block color pant and sheer (!) tops.
I'm just stunned as to how someone can put together these patterns that no one would think to put together, and pull it off SO well. The only other person who can do that well is Dries, and he's another genius we can't wait to see in Paris!

This is my favorite collection thus far in both fashion weeks! I'm just wondering how she made that last dress....
