Mary Katrantzou for Longchamp
Rising London-based designer Mary Katrantzou has collaborated with French label Longchamp for a collection of Eastern-influenced handbags.
Designed with the vision “When East meets West”, the line continues Katrantzou’s signature patterned aesthetic, and includes an array of totes adorned in Eastern-inspired motifs such as orchids and paper lanterns.
With a pre-exclusive launch scheduled January 23, the line will be available at Parisian boutique Colette, whose e-commerce site offers international shipping.
Longchamp have chosen well with their latest collaboration as Katrantzou is currently one of London’s biggest emerging fashion talents.
The Greek-born creator was announced Emerging Talent Ready-to-Wear winner at the British Fashion Awards back in November.
She is becoming a dab hand at collaborations too; a 14-piece collection of dresses by Katrantzou for British high street retailer Topshop will be released this February.
