Mary Katrantzou returned to her trademark prints and her Greek origins, showing a Spring-Summer collection triggered by the words of a girlfriend who happened to remark, “Your work is so psychedelic!” Not seeing her many-layered digital compositions that way before led her to search out the trippy graphics of the late-’60s and early-’70s music posters.

Katrantzou mixed psychedelic patterns with symbols of the ancient Greek world in the form of flared trousers and stretch T-shirts, layered under lots of her signature embellished dresses for a visually exuberant runway show.

“It was a really personal collection,” she said. “I’m usually more abstract in my approach, but this time I wanted to look at my roots — and distort the images with something that was op-art and psychedelic.”
