“Say it with flowers” they say: fashion designer surely thought about it and decided to make flowers the next big thing.
Prada created silky pencil skirts, but also small bags and dresses, decorated with big red roses, which hug the feminine curves. A romantic twist in a mainly dark collection, since Miuccia loves contrasts.
Jacquemus did the same as well. In his latest collection, titled “La collectioneuse”, a model wore a white suit covered with huge daisies.
GCDS continues its journey into pop culture, and Giuliano Calza is able to match camp with delicate details. The models’ faces were decorated with tridimensional flowers that seemed to bloom from cracks, like some fantastic creatures.
Dries Van Noten, eternally fascinated by flowers, decided to reproduce the ones that grow in his garden on his collection’s silks and prints. Jackets, skirts, tights and dresses are covered in colorful flowers and vibrant shades. “I wanted roses but not sweet roses—roses with an edge, roses for now […] So you see the diseases, the blackspot, the imperfections.” he said to Vogue Runway. Chic and sophisticated as usual.
Miuccia Prada again, this time with her girly line, Miu Miu, chose to decorate with cute little embroidered flowers the tulle dresses and tights. She played with materials; they can also be printed on bags or trousers or delicately sewn over the shoulders. Adorably chic.
Even at Alexander McQueen Sarah Burton, who was inspired by the dark atmospheres of the industrious and industrial England and its textile factories, devoted a catwalk segment to beautifully structured gowns and suits with romantic details: almost tridimensional roses wrapped around the shoulders or decorating a woman’s neck.
