The third consecutive collaboration "The Surrealist Ideal" by Erik Madigan Heck displays the Mary Katrantzou Fall/Winter collection with a dreamlike twist.

Known for the intricate patterns in her garment design, Katrantzou reigns supreme in creating revolutionary prints. Her collaboration with Madigan brings her designs to the elated state of wearable art with surrealist imagery.

The series was inspired by early surrealist works such as those of the Russian painter Mark Chagall. These works are an incarnation of Katrantzou's vision for Fall/Winter 2012 that revolved around fantasy and dreams. The photo series boasts rich motifs inspired by Catholic Iconography and Greek mythology. The floating models embody the references to early Parisian Surrealist paintings, and fashion's transcendence into new realms of style.

The collaboration's seamless marriage of art and fashion creates iconic imagery that lingers in the mind.
