Mary Katrantzou, the Greek women’s fashion designer working out of London, has made her mark on the world and fashion industry with her quirky prints and designs. This season’s special is the limited edition ‘Initials’ series of totes. There are 26 different summery, coated-canvas totes, that each have a unique print, either inspired or original, that match its corresponding letter of the alphabet. The whole idea stemmed from her Resort 2015 collection, which comprised of typography, calligraphy, fonts, and letters to tell beautifully illustrated stories from her vivid imagination. The designer stated that the creatives on the bags too, look to typography and folklore to paint graphic prints around each alphabet.
The bags are spacious and come with a matching clutch; and both could the perfect accessory for a sunny day at the beach or a casual day at work! The bags go on sale on 22nd April, 2015 exclusively on matchesfashion.com for a price of $1,070 each. In addition, a collaboration with the e-commerce site and the designer will present buyers 26 chances to have dinner with the designer in various cities, each guest representing one of the 26 alphabets. Since each letter edition will only have 20 bags of its kind made, and unless you have an obscure name beginning with a Q or an X, you might want to hurry and grab yours as soon as you can!
