In case you were wondering, the title of this post refers to perfume or perfume bottles to be precise. Perfume bottles were the inspiration for the bold striking prints featured in the London Fashion Week collection of Mary Katrantzou. Mary was awarded New Generation sponsorship for her autumn winter 09 collection and I am so glad she was. She has pulled out all the stops in creating a collection that was so amazing on every level. From the very wearable and flattering shapes to clever use of the graphic prints to the oversized chunky jewellery that were the icing on the cake.
I loved the way the narrow necks of the perfume bottles in the prints fell exactly on the waists giving the illusion of exaggerated tiny waists. This is definitely a look I will be trying out.
