When I speak about fashion trends I always say that following them blindly doesn’t make you a fashionista. You should be able to wear trendy pieces the way they don’t contradict to your personal style. And your style is the most important thing. As Coco Chanel once said “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” Floral print trend comes and goes but feminine style almost never can exist without florals.
Many designers and brands used floral trend in their Spring/ Summer 2011 collections. Erdem collection was all about florals and lace – very feminine and elegant. Flowers were printed and embroidered.
Carolina Herrera used flowers as the basis for her range. She took botanical plates collected in the eighteenth century as the inspiration.
While Mary Katrantzou featured floral trend scarcely but cleverly, Anna Sui played with it a lot showing it everywhere in her Spring/ Summer 2011 collection: from cute dresses to stylish but girly leggings.
To my surprise, even Jean Paul Gaultier, who doesn’t normally focuses on femininity, in his Spring/ Summer 2011 collection paid attention to the floral trend making the designs look more romantic.
