No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut. ~ Channing Pollock

leelee sobieski ▪ metropolitan opera opening night ▪ nyc ▪ september 26, 2011

Leelee is wearing Mary Katrantzou, a RISD and Central St Martins-trained Greek designer who is making waves lately for her beautiful and complex prints splashed on structured dresses.  She spends hours in front of the computer, digitally generating and layering colors, a technological leap from the mechanical silkscreen prints of yore.  

For her Spring 2012 collection, Katrantzou says she was inspired by everything from tin can labels to the crushed-car sculptures of artist John Chamberlain (you can see some of his works at dia:beacon, a short and lovely train ride from nyc).  Check out some of my favorite looks from the collection:
