Mary Katrantzou for Topshop Spring 2012 Capsule Collection

Mary Katranzou for Topshop Spring/Summer 2012 collection

The Mary Katrantzou for Topshop Spring 2012 capsule collection will finally be launched on 17 February 2012 (that’s one day away!) online and in selected stores but will only arrive in Singapore on 10 March 2012. Into her third collection for Topshop, Greek-born and Central Saint Martins alumni Mary Katrantzou does prints and structural shapes once again which she is so famous for; the whole collection is basically just that. Prices range from £40 for a pair of leggings to £350 for the high-street version of her oh-so-famous Ming vase satin dress. These are not really your usual high-street prices, in fact they are rather steep actually but I guess this is what you have to fork out if you cannot afford the real deal.

Do check out the still-life pieces and prices for the nine-piece Mary Katrantzou for Topshop Spring 2012 capsule collection below as well as the rest of the print-on-print lookbook.
