Mary Katrantzou for Topshop

Mary Katrantzou For Topshop Has Arrived: Expect a Fashion Frenzy
Probably thee most anticipated collaboration to hit the high street this year was Mary         Katrantzou's nine piece, English country garden inspired capsule collection for Topshop. The collection hit stores on Friday and sent everyone in a total frenzy, with the collection being almost completely sold out online already (unless you want to pay £695 for a printed silk dress that sold in Topshop for £70)

Silk tunic from Mary Katrantzou for Topshop
The collection features silk tee's, dresses, leggings, scarfs and trousers and as stated above, was inspired by English Country Gardens with lots of floral prints and even the odd bird print thrown in for good measure. Each piece is a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern, making it intriguing to look at if anything else.

Being an ambassador for the colour black, I don't think I'll be purchasing anything from the collection - even if I wanted to, there's hardly anything left by this point - however, if I were to choose one piece it would have to be this silk tunic, with floral and bird print. It's obviously out there with pattern, however it has a versatility about it that gives it the ability to be worn in a variety of ways.

Mary Katrantzou was the toast of London Fashion Week and has recently won The Emerging Talent Award at The British Fashion Awards. She is the designer to watch for in 2012, and if the rate of her recent collab with Topshop selling off the shelves is anything to go by, then she has big things ahead of her.

What are your opinions on the collaboration - Have you purchased anything from the collection? Let me know in the comments below!
