Pangea Dress, from Spring / Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection, 2014
Katrantzou combines modernist attention to shape and structure with traditional materials and techniques—tulle and beading—to create the stunning Pangea dress. The opaque, intricately beaded structure is cut away to reveal the sheer, translucent draping of floor-length tulle. The pale, shimmery palette is accented with bright orange beaded and textured fabric. The optical effect created by this deft use of material and form is one of opulence and sophistication.
