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.
