Resort Report: Spring Florals

Phillip Lim Resort 2014.

We were offered the pick of the bunch for Resort 2014 with florals popping up everywhere. I know what you’re thinking…florals for Spring? Ground breaking. But here’s why you should get excited and get your garden shears out.

Designers have carefully cultivated appliqué, patchwork crochet and beading to bring to life a veritable 3D garden of Eden. Layered broderie anglais and a collage of crochet from Sarah Burton brought us carefree elegance at Alexander McQueen.

Meanwhile, Christopher Kane spun a web of blooms from Swiss lace creating a lifelike motif that worked seamlessly from sweater to evening dress. And as Dandelions burst off bombers at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Matthew Williamson brought us what we’d always dreamed of, beaded cacti.

Others invited you to step into the hot house but with palm leaves springing up everywhere there’ll be plenty of shade. Antonio Beradi suggests you wear your foliage head to toe but be sure to keep accessories green to match your thumb. Jason Wu opted to focus on the silhouette of the vegetation letting the shape do all the talking.

From fields of flowers and shady trees that liquefied into cool ponds Mary Katrantzou’s wearable secret garden is a technicolour world you’ll want to be a part of.

Florals don’t have to be boring or something reminiscent of wall paper, this season let the blooms grow, intertwine and plant themselves firmly in your Spring wardrobe.

Check out some inspiration from Resort 2014 collections below!
