With immersive graphics and electric colours, Mary Katrantzou’s designs speak with a bold, clear creative vision. For Season 2 of her partnership with streetwear giant adidas Originals, the designer looks back to 80’s workout and fitness imagery combined with sportswear paraphernalia to create abstract collages of figurative motifs. adidas Originals by Mary Katrantzou will be available in to shop online at www.marykatrantzou.com from July 2015 onwards.
Mary Katrantzou's first Pre-Fall 15 collection is a celebration of classic heritage textiles that have stood through time, forming motifs that we have adorned for decades. Injecting her signature play on perception and discovery, emblems are unearthed from her archive collections to rework and re-imagine the 19th century patterns with the use of her own heritage prints.
Pangaea and Panthalassa are the unifying ideas behind Mary Katrantzou's Spring-Summer 2015 collection. In abstraction, the idea is evocative of movement, pulling and shifting; in allegorical terms, the birth of the earth, of its flora and fauna as well as the settling into position of our contemporary continents, offers creative source material.
The Resort and Pre-Fall collections are inter-seasonal lines of ready-to-wear garments, created in addition to the two main seasonal collections - Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter. The mid-season collections are the fashion houses' response to the fast fashion invasion (H&M, Zara, Topshop). Through them, the High Fashion companies succeed to remain relevant all year long.
