Floral trend makes a big comeback every now and then. Usually it gets hotter during warmer seasons but Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 is going to be an exception. Following the bloom of florals in the Spring/ Summer 2012 collections we can expect re-invention of the trend in the upcoming season, but prints will become darker, edgier and more luxurious.
Vogue fashion director, Lucinda Chambers commented on the re-appearance of the floral trend:
Flocked fabrics and lace overlays added an air of ornateness, putting a fresh spin on the idea of flowers in winter.”
