There's Something About Mary

Mary Katrantzou describes her Spring/Summer 2012 collection as "Man meets machine meets mother earth, an army of petal, metal, print". Inspired in part by American artist John Chamberlain's sculptures of crushed-cars, and melding pixelated mismatched prints with neat, structured design, function and form both win out in this latest collection.

The 28 year old Greek-born designer is on a rapid trajectory, with none other than ADR stepping out in her designs (as well as A-Listing fashionistas including Keira Knightley and Alexa Chung)and a collection for Topshop snapped off the racks earlier this year.

Her background as a textiles designer is gorgeously highlighted in the darling cocktail dresses of her latest collection.

Asymmetrical shapes, bright colours, mini lampshade skirts... What more could a girl want?
