ZAYAN GHANDOUR

Co-owner and creative director of S*uce

"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."
