Coco ChanelWe absolutely adored this collection the second we laid eyes on it. It's designer Mary Katrantzou's first runway collection for London Fashion Week. Known for her use of prints, Katrantzou described her influences as "the refractive quality of my mother's glass perfume bottles" and you should have no problem seeing that in the trompe l’oeil effect of these clothes. Some might say she got too literal in her interpretation but these are dresses the likes of which we've never seen before and that's enough to win us over. They're not just unique; they're uniquely beautiful. She also designs jewelry and you can see the pieces in this collection. Her jewelry is large, geometric and clunky and the effect with these dresses is you can't tell where the jewelry ends and the dress begins.
