For Mary Katrantzou‘s spring collection, it was all about shoes, particularly men’s brogues, sneakers + ornate evening pumps. Enlarged photo prints of brogues were splattered across simple dresses + shorts whereas sneakers were translated with impressive detail. Up to 28 panels of photo-realistic prints were used on Neoprene + mesh, on scuba dresses + racer-style jackets. 3-D effects were occasionally added, either real or faux, which included strips of bonded rubber + Velcro straps. Katrantzou then translated floral ornate evening pumps into her typical structured bell + peplum dresses, embellished with crystals + ruffles with images of ruffles.

And if that weren’t enough to show Mary’s love for shoes, she collaborated with Gianvito Rossi to create the shoes below, to match the clothes. Aren’t they the best with aqua blue accents?
