For his Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collection, entitled ‘By the Book’, Andrew Majtenyi was inspired by the bookbinding and finishing of turn-of-the-century books, following his visit to the British Library. Prints were taken from the spines of old books and transformed into sharp tailoring and elegant maxi dresses. Scanned images of the fanned pages of opened books were blown up and featured on feminine mini dresses and coats. The resultant collection features glamorous evening wear with silhouettes reminiscent of the 1930’s and 1940’s with a contemporary twist – while classic cuts are given a sportswear feel Majtenyi is known for. Muted greys, black and navy are juxtaposed with splashes of greens, blues and reds in the beautifully tailored collection.
