today i want... mary katrantzou for topshop dress

So New York Fashion Week comes to an end on Thursday, and then it's all change as the fashion elite heads to our very own London town for 5 days of the best in British design (NYFW show reports coming soon). And one of the hottest tickets of LFW has to be Mary Katrantzou. Last season her interiors-inspired sculptural designs - think dresses in the shape of lampshades - were the talk of the week, and there's no less buzz around her forthcoming show. In an ideal world, I'd be attending this show, and I would be wearing this amazing silk printed dress from her latest capsule collection for Topshop. I've been going on about designer/high street collaborations a lot lately, but it just seems as though they're getting better and better (read about David Koma for Topshop here, and Edition at Debenhams here). So far this capsule line consists of only two dresses and two scarves, but in her signature kaleidoscopic prints they are Katrantzou through-and-through, and a great way to get a piece of an up-and-coming designer at a fraction of the price. Sadly I'll be watching her show from my sofa rather than the front row, but hey, I can still wear something nice.

Mary Katrantzou for Topshop turquoise silk print dress, £120
