The Mary Katrantzou for Topshop collection is an ethereal step into an electric-hued English garden. The collection features architectural pieces signature to Katrantzou's work. While the designer frequently works with angular volume pieces, the patterns were specially designed for the Topshop pieces. The pieces boast bright, almost neon florals. Other works resemble royal wear with oriental undertones. The most memorable is the series of graphic prints featuring images of luxurious jewellery, inspired by prized possessions of the designer.

The clothing ranges in styles, from cocktail dresses to leggings and sweaters. Katrantzou's iconic porcelain bowl dress 'Pheasant Dream' stands out in the collection as the must-have piece. While the dress is to die for, the price is not so dreamy. At $700, this look may be better inspiration for vintage hunting than for purchase, depending on the size of your wallet.
