One collaboration that I've truly been intrigued by since I heard about it a few months back was Mary Katrantzou's collaboration with Topshop, which launches this month. I first took notice of Mary Katrantzhou during the SS 2012 Fashion Week (some breathtakingly beautiful pieces available now at Barneys), followed by a small spread in Vogue; I think she's really original with her fun silhouettes and mix and match use of vibrant, grandma's china-ish prints. She creates all her prints on a computer, carefully layering various prints and patterns for a coherent piece of fabric that is seriously like a work of art. Makes my Hermes scarves look pretty ordinary. Though I'm not sure I would actually be able to pull it off, I love everything about this amazing Mary Katrantzou x Topshop balloon dress from the collaboration pictured above. It's such a statement dress, a true collectable piece of art. Too bad there's no Topshop in LA!
