Designer Mary Katrantzou is known for her boundary-pushing prints—and, at times, wallet-testing prices. When you think about it, it's like investing in art. (At least, that's what we tell ourselves when pondering whether to buy or not to buy one of the London-based, Greek designer's surreal pieces.)
While our most recent obsession, a leather clutch printed with a polarized landscape (above right) inhabits the, "maybe Santa will magically import this from the North Pole sans shipping costs" end of the shopping scale for most, Katranzou's citrus-scented candle, a collaboration with skincare brand Rodial, also features the designer's inimitable pattern-work at a comparatively more manageable price tag.
