Mary Katrantzou’s jewel-box dresses

Mary Katrantzou has excelled in the art of prints for a decade, and demonstrated her talents majestically a few days ago in her SS19 collection during London Fashion Week. Using not only prints but also embroidery, metallic knitwear and Swarovski crystals, she expressed the theme of the collection in accumulations of butterflies, postage stamps, perfume bottles and jewelry. Among the stunning pieces, two dresses resembled jewel-boxes, with compartments for rings, brooches and necklaces. It is whispered that Mary Katrantzou, who has already designed a jewelry collection for the Atelier Swarovski, could soon be launching her own jewelry line.
