From oversized carnations and bold peonies to tiny roses and wild daisies, flowers are blooming on the runways bringing a fresh breeze of colors and shapes: harbingers of spring.
Inspired by Mother Nature, fashion designers swoons over exuberant florals and incorporate them abundantly in their SS15 collections.
Oscar de la Renta and Marchesa celebrate spring with ethereal appliqués and elaborated blossoming embroideries. Max Mara reflects on nature in total immersion, covering the models with petals from heads to toes. Michael Kors and Diane von Furstenberg’s substantial floral prints strike with vibrant colors, while Dior takes us to the secret garden of the subtle and delicate. Chez Céline – colorful wildflowers and daisies; at Alberta Ferretti – sexy and sheer flower covered chantilly and net creations.
But floral motifs go even beyond romantic garden this upcoming season.
Saint Laurent sets them against a rough surface of black leather and Dolce & Gabbana teams florals with polka dot and stripes for an extra visual effect. Ordinary? No. Impactful? Yes!
Fragile, artful and daring, flowers of all species, colors and shapes enchant the fashion world with their exquisite beauty and power of nature. In a bouquet, standing on their own or in unexpected arrangements, they will flourish plentifully this spring, so be ready for a floral explosion on the streets, and in your closet.
