Florals – could there be a better signifier that the season has finally changed? Rescuing us from winter blues, this season’s fresh-looking floral and nature-inspired patterns are, quite literally, putting the spring back into our steps. Spring Summer 2016’s versions are far from being nostalgic, with this most popular of prints reinterpreted in invigorating colour combinations and weaved into unexpected details.
At Lane Crawford, we are featuring shoes, bags and accessories that rework these classic prints with an unexpected verve. The large, eye-catching blooms featured in J. Crew’s necklaces, bracelets and earrings are a feminine but bold statement that will blend right into minimal outfits – an instant fix for going out after work. For those contemplating looks for the wedding season, Paul Andrew’s striking yet elegant sandals with white, floral appliqué patterns and translucent heels will be a sure bet.
This season, florals are also adding a soft, romantic touch to sports-influenced items, as seen in Valentino Garavani’s pastel pink, floral-patterned lace sneakers. Our René Caovilla sneakers feature florals as a more graphic element, with a black-and-white colour palette, while Tory Burch’s ivory, floral embroidered, mesh-lined sneakers are a feminine take on the classic tennis shoe. Meanwhile, Valentino’s ever-popular B-Rockstud bag gets a new season makeover with a colourful butterfly, star and floral appliqué that exudes the light, vibrant mood of the warmer months. We can’t think of a better way to ring in a brand new spring than with a dose of flower power.
