We don’t know about you but we think there is nothing better than getting a sneaky peek into someone’s wardrobe, let alone inside the wardrobes of some of the fashion industry greats.

Whilst we were perusing through some of their beautiful posts we came across a very important lady…. Mary Katrantzou! In this post the Coveteur visited the designer during London Fashion Week, to have a little chat and snoop around her HQ to see some of her amazing intricate pieces from Mary’s upcoming show.

This dress is Clocktopia—she is one of my favorites this season. Partner in crime of Tikiman, they are the dynamic, robot emblazoned duo! She is flirty and playful, intricately embellished and pleated, feisty and confident, and she sits on the phone all day (look closely!).”

The animal shaped cookie cutters have been woven into these jacquard blazers, which were specially made by a family run weaver’s studio in the South of France. Uniforms and trade inspired the cookie cutter design—it was about creating an animal print from the cookie cutters that bakers use.”
