Mary Katrantzou x Current/Elliott

The last time I blogged about a killer Current/Elliott was this post… The denim duo is now combining their love of American classics with pattern maven Mary Katrantzou’s aesthetics for S/S 13.  You probably know Mary best for her trompe l’oeil kaleidoscope-like prints in vivid hues (see some here).  For her collab with Current/Elliott, the calculated and dramatic patterns are exchanged for prints inspired by travel and passport stamps.  You’ll still see mirrored designs that are a favorite Katrantzou favorite but the overall look and color pallet is softer and more in step with the laid-back vibe of Current/Elliott.

True to Mary’s taste, the collection is meant to be worn so that patterned pieces clash and play off one another… I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to do such bold pairings, but all of the pieces make a statement on their own.  The collection is “coming soon” but you can shop it right now on Matches Fashion – select what pieces you want and they’ll emailed you when they become available to buy!  My favorites are definitely this dress, and these jeans.

    Very unique! I love the dresses. Especially the sleeveless one. Don't know if I can pull off wearing those jeans.

    Oh I love these prints! Just the thing to wear when you're getting itchy feet but have to go to work instead! White passport stamp jeans are my favourite =)
