I have admired Mary Katrantzou for a while now, she is known for her awesome use of patterns, she uses prints as a sort of optical illusion to accentuate the curves of the body. I love to see how every season she builds on the last and always takes it to a new level.
|I love the large scale jewels and different colors as a pattern (Spring 2014)|
I absolutely fell head over heels when she took her patterns to a new place with letters and lace in her Resort 2015 collection
I was kinda wondering how long it would take the trendy stores to hop on her pattern and print trend. When I saw this awesome skirt in a large scale jewel print very similar to hers at H&M, I thought it was awesome but where would I wear it? It would be good for holiday parties but it's pretty flashy. I'm still on the fence about it.
Then I heard about her collaboration with Adidas!!!! This is the most excited I've been about a designer collaboration in years. I live in sneakers and love fun patterns so it doesn't get much better than this for me. Mary's Adidas collection comes out mid November.

I'm pretty sure the sportswear trend is here to stay for a while. Who are you inspired by lately? What designer collaborations are you excited about?
