Romantic florals are in full bloom this summer.
With a nod to grandma's closet (you always knew she was stylish!), this season’s florals could easily pose as high-end upholstery or fabulous vintage wallpaper. It was at Dries Van Noten that we first noticed a significant update to Granny’s goodies with clean silhouettes and black backgrounds adding a modern edge to an otherwise obvious Victorian influence. At Versace, the florals mixed seamlessly with soft hombre for a painterly effect, incorporating yet another of the season’s top trends—the fusion of art and fashion. And while both of these iterations had us more than ready to stop and smell the roses, it was Michael Kors whose breezy floral dresses had us ready to forgo the garden in favor of the oh-so-picturesque Midwest farm.
