Something of a rebirth at Mary Katrantzou with a collection that was enough of a departure from her usual style to keep her line feeling fresh and progressive. Continuing the trend of pattern-clashing that we saw in New York, we loved Katrantzou's mix of mini checks, lace and graphic elements as well as her clever styling trick of combining colourful sock-lets with open-toed sandals which will ensure that the strappy footwear can be worn for more than just one season while providing an interesting pop of colour. As with McQueen, butterflies featured prominently and so did stars and hearts. Butterflies were referenced literally or as stoles around shoulders or banding at the waist and stars were used effectively as cutouts on shoulders.
