Mary Katrantzou partners with Gianvito Rossi
to launch first full retail footwear range

London-based designer Mary Katrantzou has collaborated for the first time with Italian shoe designer Gianvito Rossi to create a range of shoes to accompany her footwear-inspired SS14 collection. Blown up to 200% scale on the clothing, Mary's prints are scaled down for the footwear, tricking the eye with renderings of punched and serrated leather, embroidered silk or high-impact sports mesh. Created from silk satin, each shoe features decorated with details taken from athletic shoes, highly-polished leather brogues or embellished evening mules. The styles are round-toed, balanced on a sturdy heel and thick tracked sole. Following her earlier editorial footwear collaborations, this is the first time Mary has offered a full retail footwear range to accompany her collection. The launch date for the collection will be confirmed following Mary's London Fashion Week show next month.
