When it comes to making far-out prints look super chic, you can always count on Mary Katrantzou. The Greece-born, London-based designer was trained in textile engineering, and has been experimenting with surreal, digitized motifs since she was a still student at Central Saint Martins over ten years ago. For her fall 2017 collection, she took her signature prints to another level, using scenes and characters from Disney’s Fantasia on an array of dreamy cocktail dresses, luxe evening coats, and beautiful double-breasted jackets that were unveiled on the runway at London fashion week.

The 1940 classic, you’ll probably remember, is comprised of several wondrous animated vignettes set to classical music. Katrantzou took inspiration from the fifth vignette in Fantasia, titled “Pastoral Symphony” with music by Beethoven. The vignette depicts a mythical festival populated by centaurs, cupids, mermaids, and pixies, which is cut short by a feud between Zeus and Bacchus, the god of wine. In other words, it’s very trippy, and destined to end up on your Instagram explore page.
