Flora and fauna have long been a favoured motif within the upper echelons of fashion.
Whether roses, daisies, or hyacinths; blossoming in bright colours or slowly wilting away, the garden variety print perseveres from season to season. A mainstay in our wardrobes and a budding new neutral – akin to leopard print – it pairs perfectly with statement colours and patterns, laying the foundation of any eye-catching ensemble.

In our October-November issue, stylist Tereza Ortiz opted for maximalist layering. In the form of a long sleeved midi-dress, small, vividly coloured buds on a pleated black background paired perfectly with a shell jacket which saw large blue blooms against a neutral white background. The aforementioned leopard print was seen layered over a deep blue midi dress with scattered pale pink flowers and a high collar. A tone-in-tone long sleeved maxi dress with blossoming bouquets layered over a bubble gum pink and fire engine red shirt was given a pop of colour with a collar.
Helena Christensen - Issue 2
While flowers are synonymous with spring, we’ve previously pointed out their newfound place on the autumn/winter runways. Top-to-toe prints permeated fashion month. Vintage in a muted colour way, highly defined and graphic with black outlines, or eye-catchingly enigmatic and abstract in highlighter hues – a vast variety of takes on the trend indeed.
In Paris, Swedish Acne Studios showed multiple looks leaning into a regal iteration of the flowering pattern. Large bouquets and dainty flowers covered coats, dresses and tops against muted backgrounds of pale yellow, green and blue. In London, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi pursued prints pertinent to the 1960s and 1970s. Large, graphic flowers in mustard yellow, forrest green and dusty pink covered a full look shot in the British countryside. Lastly, in Copenhagen floral enthusiast Stine Goya – for SS22, the Danish designer designed a print specifically inspired by a British garden party – leaned into her rainbow roots with motley coloured blooms as seen in our editorial.
