By now the collaboration between up-and-coming designer Mary Katrantzou and established French luxury goods company Longchamp is hardly breaking news. But the partnership between the two fashion forces is too exciting not to mention.
Mary Katrantzou is the new master of print, her 'S/S 12 collection a mix of deco paint strokes, oceanic scenes and bold, almost dip-dyed florals. But the theme for these classic Longchamp totes? "When East Meets West".
Mary adorns the collection of seven handbag styles with a dreamy oriental scene of lanterns and orchids set against a geometric background of buildings and blue sky. The image is reflected back on itself, giving a print that is as striking as it is skillful.
The collection is out now, and while I can't afford it a girl can dream! Check it out via Colette here
