Mary Katrantzou has, in the past, looked at perfume bottles and blown glass to inspire her collections. She's taken an even grander starting point this time, displaying a collection of dresses with images of room interiors literally ripped from the pages of Architectural Digest and The World of Interiors. This makes for a slightly more gimmicky collection, as evidenced by the chandelier necklaces, which are quite literally chandeliers. Her trompe l'oeil stylings can be quite jarring and even thought-provoking, as well as uniquely beautiful. Some of the embellishments get to be a bit much, such as the valance-like shoulder pieces and lampshade skirts beaded with Swarovski crystals. It's not woman as a object but woman as place; a strange statement but one that actually works on a couple of these dresses, especially when the graphics are slightly more abstract.
