Finally, a store for one of our favourite fashion designers...
Mary Katrantzou, the Greek-born, London-based designer famed for her eye-popping prints, has announced she’s to open her very first online store.
The e-commerce site will act as Mary’s ‘flagship store’ – how 21st century – and will launch on November 20, 2013.
Explaining why it’s taken a while for her to have a store of her own, Mary told WWD: ‘The website has said ‘Coming Soon’ for the past four years. We’ve been designing it for over a year, and it took a lot longer than we anticipated.’
No matter that it took a longer than expected, at least it’s here now (and our frustration can be quelled). The site will initially stock 45 exclusive, limited edition pieces from Mary Katrantzou’s Resort 2014 collection, as well as the Autumn Winter 2013 mainline collection.
However, even more enticing is the promise that by spring next there will be ‘a very wide range of clothing’.
Christmas has definitely come early…
