Katrantzou’s Accessorized Spring – For Mary Katrantzou, it’s all about shoes for her eponymous label’s spring 2014 collection. A highlight of London Fashion Week for her use of digital prints, the Greek designer looked towards what is worn on the feet for inspiration this season. The prints were made with images of footwear by distorting and amplifying photographs sometimes as much by two hundred percent.
For day wear, mens brogues and sporty trainers are blown up for colorful prints worn in streamlined silhouettes and cocoon-like shapes. Evening wear is polished and elegant; influence is taken from eighteenth century evening slippers as shown by the final section’s embroidered silk adorned with Swarovski crystals, ribbons and mirrors. The short and sweet dresses in fluorescent pink, blue, green and yellow hues added a romantic element to the spring season.
