Mary Katrantzou teams up with Longchamp
"I met with Sophie Delafontaine, Longchamp's artistic director, about a year ago to discuss the possibility of working together for the label's spring/summer 2012 collection," Katrantzou told us. "She had seen my work and thought it would be a great collaboration for both. It was a really great opportunity for us to work with a brand with great heritage and I loved that it's family run. Their Pliage and tote bags are the perfect canvas to engineer a print and it's also great to offer women who might not be ready to commit to a fully printed look, a bag to accessorise with!"
- LONGCHAMP has a new collaboration in view, teaming up with one of the most promising talents of her generation, the young Greek Mary who gives her own interpretation of the theme "When East meets West" and brings along her creative vision while designing a collection of bags with poetic prints of orchids and lanterns floating like balloons against blue sky.
