“Mary Ka­trant­zou’s printed jacket. Her prints have cap­ti­vated us ev­ery sin­gle sea­son since we first laid eyes on those per­fume bot­tles in 2009. And this sea­son she has taken it that step fur­ther with the most breath­tak­ing, soft­est leather jacket pos­si­ble. The print on this leather jacket is so well printed you just can’t be­lieve it’s leather. It is an A/W 2012 must-have and ab­so­lutely a time­less piece.” Dh26,250, Mary Ka­trant­zou, S*uce
