Trend: Graphic florals for Spring 2012
May 10, 2012
This summer on the catwalks was one of the prettiest, most traditionally feminine seasons in a long while. A specific theme running through a number of collections was the idea of crisp, graphic flowers.
London Fashion Week designer, Ashish, was inspired by paintings and tapestries like Van Gogh’s sunflowers or this sequin-embellished sweater. Erdem, who does florals pretty much every season in some way or another, has gone for a sporty slant on the idea with a raglan t-shirt and paneled skirt. Christopher Kane wanted his flowers to look like cut-out stickers on someone’s school pencil case, we love the way they float on this simple chiffon slip. Louise Gray has never been troubled by convention, and sure enough, her embroidered, appliquéd flowers are more like sparkley starfish.
We love this modern twist on a feminine classic!
