Mary Kratzanou, Swarovski, Swarovski crystals, Fall 2012, Prints, Hyper color

Forget sugar, spice and everything nice, Miss Mary Katrantzou has other things on her mind: typewriters, spoons, and dragon flies! Ever dynamic with her use of prints, she elevates such everyday subject matter into beautifully beguiling games of “identify the object”. Hint: let color be your guide. Her highly technical, mobile constructions are marvels to behold in motion as she continues to reimagine the silhouette. Embroidery and embellishment affect quite a sensation (as Swarovski crystals often do) in conjunction with her signature hyper-toned color palette. Mary, have mercy….
