Mary Katrantzou could be called the Queen of Prints, a name which describes her style in a nutshell. But there is much more to her collections than just prints, as you will soon see. For her Spring 2012 collection, Katrantzou stayed true to her aesthetic but wasn't afraid to take risks in order to let her signature improve and evolve.
The collection had a beautiful mix of neons splashed together and subdued pastels. Prints were mixed together ingeniously, rather than a garment focusing solely on one specific print. However, the looks felt perfect for spring with subtler floral and watercolor-inspired prints. The structured silhouettes that Katrantzou presents were still here, yet this time they were more subdued, putting the focus on the chaotic yet controlled mix of color and print spread across each garment. These combinations were masterfully done; none clashed, rather the different elements working together to create a beautiful end result.
My favorite parts of the collection, overall, were the neon minidresses at the end of the show and the addition of bright lipstick, which was a fun addition.
