PVC, foam pyramids and bold paisley prints were laid side by side in Mary Katrantzou’s latest show as she swapped her signature technical graphic prints.

The collection had as simple base of seamless charcoal grey fabric which was then sewn onto panels of different colours and textures, from yellow, pink and blue to crystals, embroidery and plastics. The collection caught eye with bold geometric shapes, sparkle.

In the show notes we were told the silhouettes of designs were made by a car company that manufactures roofs and the fabric was moulded to the female body to keep the structure without corsetry or seams.

“It was about playing with different materials and proportions,” Katrantzou said.
