Since we’re down in Atlanta showing our new collections, we thought it fitting to counter this week of cold weather with a bit of spring! Ever since Dior’s famous 1953 “Tulip” collection, floral themes have always played an important role in fashion. Spring runways are often filled with botanical beauties, celebrating the end of winter and the start of a new growing season.
We saw a range of flowery designs for Spring 2014, from lacy bejeweled pastels at Burberry to Dolce & Gabbana’s romantic garden styles. One of our new spring collections was inspired by these Fashion Flowers where pretty pinks are paired with corals, creams and greens, and bright oranges and golds are harbingers for sunny days to come.
Modern Gardens seems to be popping up everywhere in urban settings and these inspired our second collection this spring. The softening use of plants, flowers and trees can be seen in the High Line Park on New York’s West Side or the contemporary interpretation of Babylonian hanging gardens at the Parkroyal Hotel in Singapore.
Natural elements can thrive in a concrete jungle and we captured this juxtaposition by using organically shaped containers and crisp, clean, vibrant flowers for a collection that’s at home, both in the city or in the country.
Now… who’s ready for spring?
