5 Takes on Florals for Fall ’18

3 months ago

Flowers have a timeless appeal. Come summer, you can’t escape them; come winter, you long for them. Fashion’s obsession with botanicals took many forms — basic and loud, sequined and embroidered. We look to the Fall-Winter 2018 runways to highlight five kinds of florals you should be warming up to this winter.

Bold Blooms

The bigger the better, right? Fall ’18 took the proverbial to runway, with flamboyant and exaggerated florals. Valentino and Miu Miu were unafraid to play them up.

Painterly Petals

A little analog in the digital world of prints, has its own charm. Labels such as Off White and Dolce & Gabbana mesmerized us with their richly detailed renditions.

Garden Glory

A variety of blooms – veritable gardens! – were employed to pull looks together. Oscar De La Renta and Gucci looked to their lush backyards to create statement pieces with pops of colour.

Charming Chintz

Dainty, teacup florals naturally found their way into the Fall Winter ’18 edits too. Saloni and Michael Kors created dreamy midi dresses worth obsessing over. Side note: This silhouette has fast become every fashion enthusiast’s go-to, partly for its ease we’re sure but also largely for its elegance.

Neon Nerd

Acid hues, reminiscent of the rebellious ‘80s and ‘90s filled florals too. No one mined saturated hues better than Balenciaga, Saint Laurent or Richard Quinn.
