Is it bad that it’s only just May and I’m thinking of Autumn/Winter? I suppose it’s just the way us seasonally-challenged fashion folk are conditioned to thinking- always a step ahead.
At the moment I’m really feeling floral on black, a perfect way to keep positive and transition from June to gloom. I’m clearly not alone in feeling this way as one of the stand-out looks from Kate Moss’ recent capsule collection for Topshop is none other than a stunning black floral number.
Valentino, Christopher Kane and Erdem (respectively) have already latched onto this trend and presented their offerings of tops and dresses as a part of their SS14 collections, available in stores now.
This look is far from over, though. Russian newcomers Vilshenko (the brand Alexa Chung is tipped to don to pal Poppy Delevigne’s wedding this year) are offering up a delightful sheer gown perfect for playing dress-up in their AW14 lookbook. Edgy, Dazed & Confused favourites MSGM sent some delectable red-splashed botanical-print sweatshirts down the runway this season. Who cares about Kenzo these days anyway?
Embrace your deep, dark flower power.
