Painterly Florals


Decorative dresses are bold and beautiful this season, rendered in eye-catching, brightly colored floral prints that are impossible to ignore. The humble poppy comes to life in a watercolor palette printed in electric crimson and lapis. Soft pleating and ruffles in floaty chiffon create languid silhouettes that billow as they catch the wind, while frayed floral petals painstakingly hand-sewn onto silk georgette lend a three-dimensional effect. Nipped at the waist and anchored with chunky accessories, the lively floral print becomes equal parts impressionistic and contemporary. Not every work of art has to hang on a wall.

Hand-cut embroideries and soft pleats add a three-dimensional feel to this season’s painterly florals.
