Mary Katrantzou for Current/Elliott

Since graduating from Saint Martins School in 2008, Greek designer Mary Katrantzou has launched her own brand, produced capsule collections for Topshop and her catwalks have become the ‘must see’ show of London Fashion Week.

Her summer 2013 collection was particularly commended in the press for her daring use of prints that depict postage stamps from around the world, as if enlarged under a microscope, structured by a black, graphic base reminiscent of Greek columns. The clarity of these large motifs was engineered using a transfer technique on glass, of which the designer chooses to keep a secret.

Seduced by the spirit of her collection, American brand Current/Elliott approached Katrantzou to create a capsule collection in-keeping with the spirit of travel.

Plane tickets, stamps, scribbled signatures and visas have, for the time being, replaced her signature postage stamp prints. Her collection of statement jeans, skirts, shorts, dresses and t-shirts illustrate a successful transition for the young designer in this collaboration of a more urban than couture vein. Have a look at the Spirograph pattern jeans that give a feminine and arty look to this wardrobe staple, as well as the dresses with measured cuts versatile for every occasion. This sell-out success collection is available now on the Current/Elliot website.
