Mary Katrantzou Spring/Summer 2017 collection or returning to her design roots.

Katrantzou’s earliest collections, rich with dazzling trompe l’oeil, created one of the most distinctive design signatures of the past decade, so distinctive, in fact, that her efforts to move on have been dogged by that early success. With her spring/summer 2017 collection, Mary Katrantzou  snapped back to own who she is: a great print designer, and a Greek one.“It’s funny, I never wanted to use classical Greek art, because being from there, it seemed too obvious,” she said with a shrug after her show. “But this time, I thought, ‘Why not?’She looked back to her childhood visit to the ancient palace of Knossos, on Crete, the center of the Minoan civilization. Mary Katrantzou transposed the profiles of Minoan  goddesses   onto the bodices of dresses  and  printed them onto shimmery chain-mail tunics.



London Fashion Week :Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2017

The night before this show, the opera Eliogabalo opened saison at the Palais Garnier, in Paris, with 60 costumes designed by Gareth Pugh. Seems that the Pugh’s work for the opera wound up informing his new collection. Anyway, there is  no beating a Gareth Pugh show for sheer showmanship -this season, he accelerated hard into that impulse, sending out numerous looks in bullion-like gold  These heavily decorated ensembles gave way to a collection notable for its atypical earthiness. There were the striped and sunburst-patterned looks which gives the Pugh aesthetic something new. The broad sundresses, caftans, and obi-belted looks struck an entirely original tone.

Genius John or Maison Margiela Artisanal Fall/Winter 2016

It is a renewed sense of outward-looking engagement in Galliano’s Maison Margiela Artisanal Fall/Winter 2016.His collection mixed up fragments of technical urban streetwear with references to French revolutionary times, including a swaggering military greatcoat and a tricorne hat, worn at a jaunty angle, which might almost have been purloined from Napoleon’s own wardrobe.All the followers  of John Galliano’s early work knows that the designer has had a career-long romance with French Revolution , which began with Les Incroyables, his graduation collection from Central Saint Martins, shown in 1984. In his new Artisanal Galliano even reffering back to his earlest work-it seems he reprised an idea for a muslin dress, embroidered with red lace from a collection he once did about the post-revolutionary Merveilleuses. In any case it is  Galliano’s love of the empire line in general was evident here.The collection felt like the best marriage yet of Margiela and Galliano. It has long been a Galliano-ism to put clothes on upside down and back to front, it is a part of his experimental mission to question tradition and find new forms in clothing,a process that he has extending into wrapping, draping, and twisting swags of fabric to create new volumes.It’s also an on-point participation of the world of young fashion nowadays.
