I’m sure you all remember your moms in the the ’80’s wearing floral print trousers. My mom looked fabulous in them. In the ’90’s I hated all our fashion legacy. Floral prints? How cheesy and kitsch. But you know what? Now 20 years later they are leading the runways and the streets… and I love them! As I always say there is nothing new to fashion, just reinvented, nipped and tucked… As if that’s so wrong!
2012 Spring Fashion Weeks all plunged into a garden of Eden and delivered us explosions of floral prints. Dolce & Gabbana’s show still remains my fave with sexy, floral Sophia Loren’s look-a-likes invading the runway. Salvatore Ferragamo’s floral print silky jumpsuit can turn any fashion ignorant into a real fashionista. And the list goes on with Cavalli, Thakoon, Mary Katranzou, Osman, Isabel Marant, J. Krew or Alaexander Wang. They all go back to sensual femininity. The true style & fashion that was so well mastered by our dearest mothers and grandmothers.
And everyone wants a piece of all this old school glamour and sex appeal that is the new 2012 spring fashion trend. Celebrities and non-VIP’s such as myself relish on the floral print trousers. In converses or heeled Louboutins, with jumpers or blazers they sure make us look so effortlessly cool. A bit like Olivia Palermo & Jessica Alba perhaps, but in high street fashion. Yep ZARA, H&M, Topshop can come quite in handy to us common people… We can’t all relish on Dolce & Gabbanas now, can we? Well at least not just yet.
This week London streets seemed to have exploded with floral print trousers. They are everywhere. In a million colors & styles.Such a spring cliche, I know… but can’t help myself to love’em.
