Known for collaborating with up-and-coming designers to produce capsule collections, Topshop has merged with London Fashion Week’s favorite designer, Mary Katrantzou for spring.
Katrantzou’s clothing has been worn by stylish celebrities such as Keira Knightly, Alexa Chung, and Leelee Sobieski; and her 14-piece collection will feature her signature blown glass inspired prints, but will cost consumers a fraction of the price.
This ethereal collection won’t hit stores until February, but Style Bubble’s Susie Lau attended Katrantzou’s press preview for the collection and got to take some great images of the new dresses.
The new collection is said to retail for $560—not a bad price considering that Katrantzou’s designs are usually priced at $4,500. And, like the recent Missoni for Target craze, this collection could have people lined outside Topshop stores to get their hands on a limited edition item.
Fashion for the masses has appeared to be what’s “in” for designers, as they collaborate with commercial retailers to create affordable pieces to expand their audience.
Either way, everyone wins, so let’s share the fashion!
