Erik Madigan Heck shoots Mary Katrantzou SS13



Mary Katrantzou’s prints have often be considered wearable art, so it only makes sense that her pieces have become the subject of photographer Erik Madigan Heck’s latest breathtaking prints. Heck whose work has been featured in Vanity Fair, W Magazine, The New York Times among many others and collaborated with fashion designers like The Row, Haider Ackerman, Kenzo and Ann Demeulemeester has shot a series of Katrantzou’s collections since 2010. 

In an interview with style.com he stated, “I contacted her originally after she won the Swiss Textile Award. I was enamored with her creativity and use of color, and I thought we could collaborate in an interesting and innovative way,”

“Intended as an artistic project rather than a campaign, the photos are an eye-catching (and, dare we say, refreshing) approach to showcasing Katrantzou’s clean Spring silhouettes and currency-inspired prints.” – Style.com

This kind of work really strengthens the bond between fashion and art, “Digital print Queen Katrantzou's beautiful collage-like designs are perfectly fused with Heck's mesmerising paint over-like photography”.



We though it was worth including the images from previous collections as they were simply too beautiful to ignore.

New Shourouk - We'll take one of everything please!


Parisian designer Shourouk Rhaiem's fashion motto is “luxury and decadence”, and her eponymous jewelry label stands by this ethos. Seen on everyone from Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez to Anna Della Russo and Blake Lively Shourouk brings the wow factor to your accessories collection with her Swarovski crystal cuffs, bib necklaces and dazzling drop earrings.

 The entire Belinda office came out to fawn over the Shourouk delivery when it came in, making mental notes of which pieces we would have to pick up in store for ourselves.



Her hybrid of maharajah sportive designs create an ethereal combination using contrasting materials from swarovski crystals, metal sequins and silk to industrial elements.

Mary Katrantzou X Current/Elliott

Here at Belinda we love a collaboration. What we love even more is when two of our own store favourite combine, to create what we think is an unstoppable combination.

Mary Katrantzou has teamed up with Current Elliott creative director Serge Azria for her Spring 2013 collection on a series of denim pieces that are a departure from what we have come to expect from Mary K.

“We thought denim would be a great challenge and with Serge, there seemed to be a synergy with our work—from opposite sides of the spectrum,” says Katrantzou. “We wanted it to feel very different to what we usually do.”


So far we love what we are seeing and it can only get better from here….

Desperately Dreaming of Dries

 


 A spectacular balance of masculine and feminine styles, this is Dries Van Noten at its best. This collection showcases all the reason why we love Dries, the prints, a masculine/feminine dynamic and his use of aesthetics reminiscent of haute couture.





 We love his use of plaid reworked in taffeta, organza, mousseline and lame. You cannot ignore the Kurt Cobain inspiration behind this collection. This is feminine grunge at its most beautiful.


 



"I wanted to go back to having fun with clothes," said Van Noten. “It’s everything that I love. It has that kind of menswear/women’s-wear kind of grungy, spontaneous feel.”
