Full Bloom

30 Mar

by Dora Bora//

Florals in spring may sound like the most obvious fashion cliché, but let’s face it… florals seem to be on steroids this year, dragging you inevitably in tempting and all-fun print-on-print combinations. And the psychedelic results, may convert even those who feel that floral prints only belong with the helpless romantics.
This spring serves as the ideal opportunity to dig out of the depths of our closet that floral vintage dress, play with the shape, saturate the colours, top it up with another layer of floral print, add some “bling” and hit the streets with flair.
Of course, the most talented designers could not stay impartial to this flourishing explosion. From Erdem, to Stella McCartney, to Peter Pilloto and to the most loyal print advocate Mary Katrantzou, hi-fashion boutiques all over the world seem to be more colourful and cheerful than ever. And things start to get really intriguing when florals hit the “extremes” (yes, I am talking about shoes, AGAIN). The “street catwalks” during the most renowned Fashion Weeks also did set floral prints as the ultimate trend for this season.

Even if you are not a print person, you have to admit that this colour explosion puts a smile on your face. Dare you, or dare you not?

    I have to admit that those photos made me smile. Spring is finally here so it would be nice dress to match the season’s bloom.
