#5: Mary Katrantzou necklace

Clean, crisp minimalism or dressed to excess? So far, it feels our Object Fetish project is making a compelling case for the latter - only compounded this week's analysis of Mary Katrantzou's outré ormolu arabesques. A full-frontal expression of a rebellious undercurrent of elaboration running counter to A/W 2010's 'New Minimalism', our analysis, as ever, wrenches Katrantzou's painstaking work apart through film and text.
