Optic illusion and psychedelic print at Mary Katrantzou spring 2017

For spring 2017 Mary Katrantzou returned to her comfort zone with her signature prints and her Greek origins. Colorful optical patterns with frescos, chariot racers, urns and meandering Greek fret designs were the motifs covering lean tube dresses, tunics and flaring pants that walked the runway to an inspiring Prince soundtrack — wouldn’t look out of place on a Versace runway.

Backstage, the designer shared trips as a child to Knossos Palace, and “the saturation of color” she saw there as the inspiration.

“It was a really personal collection,” she said. “I’m usually more abstract in my approach, but this time I wanted to look at my roots — and distort the images with something that was op-art and psychedelic.”
