Wilderness Of Mirrors

It was only little over a year ago that Mary Katrantzou showed the collection that - after a few seasons of great promise but relative obscurity - catapulted her to the creme de la creme of London designers. Can you believe that?

Since then, her florals and striking print-on-print visions have blossomed all over the fashion world, from designers to the high street. There can be no doubt it was her direct influence that everyone was suddenly after floral tights, smart trousers and jeans, and more print clashes than had ever been deemed possible, even in the most exuberant baroque paintings.

I wasn't fast enough to get my hands on the Mary Katrantzou for Topshop (click here for a quick peek) dresses and the blouse in my size but, to be honest, I was relieved I didn't really have to make the decision. The floral legging, however, was a simple enough piece for experiments.

But wild floral bottoms are just the beginning. I, for one, can't get enough of mirror prints, scarf prints, and all that colour and print blocking. Enter two exquisite, smart tees by Oasis - it's time to get lost in the wilderness.
