Mary Katrantzou’s AW16 collection entered in a carnival of colours, bringing designs to life via the fluttering wings of butterflies and birds. The epitome of the edit, this tulle dress is characterised by its wave of butterfly, star and heart embroidery, all finished in soft leather. Zigzags travel across the pleated skirt to progress a '70s look as the silk lining dips low at the back, allowing the embroidery to trace patterns like artwork on the skin.
