With just a month until the 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the lingerie brand has announced its designer collaboration for this year's runway. Following last year's capsule collection with Balmain's Olivier Rousteing, the brand has tapped Mary Katrantzou to design a section of this year's show.
Katrantzou, often referred to as the "Queen of Prints," is known for her colorful, feminine designs and out-of-this-world prints. Always a favorite at London Fashion Week, the UK-based designer has been worn by the likes of Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, and Beyoncé over the years.
"Everything that Victoria’s Secret creates is about a woman feeling confident and empowered—and also having fun with what she is wearing, This collaboration is going to be bold, fun and playful,” Katrantzou said in a statement from the brand.
The Victoria’s Secret x Mary Katrantzou capsule collection will make its debut on the runway at this year's VS Fashion Show, which is returning to New York City this November after previously holding shows in Shanghai and Paris. Immediately after the show airs, the Mary Katrantzou-designed pieces will be available to shop both online and in stores for holiday.
The collaboration marks the second time Victoria's Secret has partnered with a luxury fashion brand for its annual show. The first was last year's capsule collection with Olivier Rousteing of Balmain. The French designer created a range of looks for the show, which hit stores after the show aired.
While a lot of details have yet to be released about this year's VS Fashion Show, we do know at least 18 new models will make their debut in the show, including Winnie Harlow, Duckie Thot, and Sadie Newman. It will also be the first Victoria's Secret show in 17 years without Alessandra Ambrosio, who retired from the runway last year.
But the real question is: who will wear the million-dollar Fantasy Bra this year?
