EXCLUSIVE: Mary Katrantzou X Current/Elliott-------
Mary Katranzou showed a collection in London yesterday evening that was right on the money. Or rather, with her banknote- and stamp-inspired prints, the money was right on it. And there’s more where that came from—to go with it, she collaborated with Current/Elliott creative director Serge Azria on a series of denim pieces, translating her sheaths and shifts into everyday casual wear. “We thought denim would be a great challenge and with Serge, there seemed to be a synergy with our work—from opposite sides of the spectrum,” says Katrantzou. “We wanted it to feel very different to what we usually do.” In a statement, Azria adds, “Mary brought to me such unexpected ideas with her expert craftsmanship, I was immediately convinced.” Style.com got the very first look at the collection of dresses, skirts, and jeans, which hits stores mid-February. Check out a few of our favorite pieces ($230-$530), here.
