Last night, April 20th, 2015, Ruth & Tom Chapman, joint CEOs of MATCHESFASHION.COM, and designer Mary Katrantzou hosted an A – Z cocktail party at the Kayne Griffin Corcoran gallery in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of her exclusive „Initials“ tote bag collection.

Taking its cue from Mary Katrantzou’s typography inspired Resort 15 collection, MATCHESFASHION.COM worked closely with Mary on this exclusive 26-piece collection of limited edition tote bags. Each coated-canvas bag, in a limited edition run of 20, is beautifully painted with a plethora of architectural, graphic and fun prints that are collaged and juxtaposed to create the definitive A-Z of Mary Katrantzou

Mary Katrantzou says, ‚M is for Mary & MATCHESFASHION.COM! For Resort 15 we looked to the alphabet and literature for inspiration. I wanted the totes we’ve designed exclusively for MATCHESFASHION.COM to be fun, for the graphics to go beyond the boundaries of literature in favour of a new, visual language. A language which explores the personality of the wearer, made all the more special by a single defining letter.‘

Natalie Kingham, Buying Director, MATCHESFASHION.COM says, ‚These limited edition totes captures what is so brilliant about Mary – her fantastical imagination and her sense of practicality. Who wouldn’t want to have a personalised tote that is witty and original but can be used every day!‘

Guests at the launch event included, amongst others, Kiernan Shipka, Michelle Monaghan, Gillian Jacobs, Liberty Ross, Jenny Slate, Jena Malone, Isabelle McNally, Erica Pelosini, Caroline Vreeland, Edward Enninful, Cameron Silver, Johnny Wujek and Christine Centenera.
Guests enjoyed food by LA-based chef Jessica Koslow of SQIRL and drank CapRock vodka cocktails and champagne.

The Mary Katrantzou Initials tote bags retail for $1,070 USD and are exclusively available at MATCHESFASHION.COM from April 22nd worldwide.
