Florals, could this be the summer of Love all over again?!
Remember Miranda Priestleys famous catty line in Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Bitchy yet it’s been proven false time and time again.
It seems we have an ongoing love affair with floral prints with a myriad of designers offering up their take on the iconic pattern. Get ready to embrace your inner lady with floral print dresses, swimsuits, shoes, and even sunglasses. This season’s florals come in soft pastel colours and vibrant hues, all of which are some variation of the garden theme.
The floral print trend has been in full bloom for as long as we can remember, Spring 2013 brought with it oversized floral motifs that even included 3D designs. Erdem, king of the floral print, adapted his signature print in sorbet hued 3D appliqués that caught the eye of not one but two Hollywood A-listers before the collection had even hit stores.
Another titan of floral prints, Oscar de la Renta, showed appliques so big, they were virtually life-size.
For those less willing to live in bloom all season long, the floral trend still continues from previous years with printed pants, mini-dresses, skirts, and everything else retailers can put a flower on. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy and romance of spring. Perhaps this is why the floral trend is one that just won’t go away.
