Victoria’s Secret Is Out: Mary Katrantzou Confirmed!
Shhhh, the secret is finally out! We’ve been sitting on this one for a while and we’re finally able to announce that our best Greek friend Mary Katrantzou is the guest designer for the Victoria’s Secret 2018 show! Oh, yes, the queen of prints will be debuting her floral wonders as part of a capsule collection within the upcoming VS show.
And what great timing. Her brand has just celebrated its 10th anniversary with a fabulous show at the Roundhouse in Camden. You’d think that a stamp of that magnitude would derive from a contender with decades and decade under her belt. But Alas Mary Katrantzou has shaped and reimagined our view of what it means to be a millennial woman. She is smart, she confident and she embraces her quirks. No one admires a woman’s form more than Dame Kantrantzou herself. Her famed take on ordinary objects and transforming them into marvels of opulence and sexy to the highest order, still seems rather remarkable.
All of that is making us squeak with excitement when imagining what’s to come. “Everything that Victoria’s Secret creates is about a woman feeling confident and empowered—and also having fun with what she is wearing, this collaboration is going to be bold, fun and playful,” our mate Mary tells us. And after the success of last year’s collaboration with Balmain and Olivier Rousteing, the second instalment is bound to impress. The best part is – we’ll be able to buy the capsule collection we’ll see at the show just in times for the holidays. Straight to our wishlist, it goes.
And just a quick recap about the show – we’ve got 17 new girls walking, the show will take place in NYC, and – as always – it will be fab. There’ll be glitter, there’ll be glitz, and there will most definitely be glamour. Countdown is on!
