Spring Summer 2014
Footwear inspires Mary Katrantzou’s Spring Summer 2014 collection, it is a veritable fetish for shoes. Katrantzou rips the shoe apart, reinventing it as a total look. With a whirlwind of technical exploration, she keeps us on our toes. The details of footwear become decorative devices, engineered to outline and define the female form. Brogues suggest highly-polished daywear in structured shapes, sneakers are constructed to create sleek sportswear in neon-brights and evening mules are cocoons of luxurious texture and vibrant print. This is a collection where no two dresses, ironically, form a matching pair.
