Mary Katrantzou Pre-Fall 2017 Collection

The Greek designer Mary Katrantzou left everyone in awe with her colorful Pre-Fall 2017 Collection. The designer found inspiration in a deck of cards to create a playful clothing line. The easily wearable designs were released on Monday and she says they are “based on the patterns on the backs of playing cards, which probably no one notices very much, but which are so varied and amazing when you do start to study them.” Katrantzou’s latest collection is more proof of her immense creativity and her ability to link the impossible together.

It seems that the designer is obsessed with different shapes and colors that really dominate in most of her work. Katrantzou stays loyal to her Greek roots, combining the Ancient vibe with surreal geometric and psychedelic forms, that result in playful, fun designs that are just perfect for the summer and early fall.

The line will be available in stores from June to September and all of the pieces are perfectly adapted for the season. The colors that dominate are electric blue and flaming orange-red. Black and white are also combined to emphasize the shapes and make the looks more down-to-earth.

When it comes to fabrics, there is a variety that starts from light silk and chiffon creations perfect for warm summer days, to creations made of tweed for the cooler autumn days. The energetic, bold colors act provide the perfect accent for formal occasions.

The pajama creations made of silk are really eye-catching, especially with their fun geometric pattern. The dresses are also very vibrant and fun to wear, with a striking combination of colors. Most of them are pleated both long and short, while others are cute jacquard with stylish pearls placed strategically around the neckline. The chiffon dresses are light, vivid, decorated with beautiful flowers and can be worn for many different occasions. The most interesting detail present on some of the creations are the hands with red painted nails that are holding a set of cards. The jacket and dress made of tweed are decorated with flower-shaped buttons.
