The Fashionista Who Lived In A Shoe: Mary Katrantzou S/S '14

Oh London Fashion Week, we love you so, so much! You really are the ruby red, gleaming cherry on the top of the fashion cake - a great big juicy, sweet bite of (perhaps ever so slightly kitsch) deliciousness. 

Don't get us wrong, we've lapped up a week of Stateside polished grooming and sleek, wearable pieces. We've loved the easy elegance of the boxy, sports-luxe separates; the tailoring with a zesty dash of prep; and all those jaw-droppingly stunning Hollywood gowns. But, we're sorry Calvin, Tommy, Ralph and Oscar, we lost our hearts to London years ago and no amount of glossy slick sheen can match up to the riotous sartorial spectacle of the British capital's catwalks.

And, if there's one show that we always look forward to with particular Christmas Eve-like glee, it's Mary Katrantzou. The Greek designer's intricate digital prints, often cast in eye-popping brights, had us at Hello all the way back in 2009... Every season since, we've waited with baited breath, sure that no collection could be as amazing as the last, and every season since Katrantzou has somehow managed to kick things up a notch. 

This season thankfully was no exception. 

Well, how could three shoe obsessed Katrantzou super-fans ever be anything but completely bowled over by a collection inspired by footwear?! From shiny conker-coloured brogues to acid bright trainers and, last but not least, intricately, bejewelled evening slippers, Katrantzou has literally made it possible for you to live in a shoe. 

MK, you are a fashion genius. That is all...
