Mary Katrantzou is a designer that is conquering the fashion world with her wonderful prints and her absolutely new and fresh style.
I find on Net-a-Porter this amazing long dress, which close the s/s 2011 show, with a classic print of Mary and two black sheer silk-chiffon ruched drapes at side.
As you know, fringes are one of the trends of this s/s and a lot of brands such as Gucci, Balmain.... use this decoration. Those two chiffon pieces give to the dress a movement that is like the movement given by fringes but in a more "legant" and innovative way. Katrantzou styel is strange and sometimes could appear a bit exaggerate but I think that with this dress, or in general with her last shows, she is really improving her style and moving to a more elgant one. I hope that she will never abandon these amazing tridimensional prints which make her so unique and different from the other designers.
The dress is all realized in silk and, of course silk-chiffon.
