FASH­ION Fresh brunch

Thank your nana for spring’s dainty ap­proach to wear­ing those ubiq­ui­tous flo­rals

Weekend Herald - Canvas - - CONTENTS -

Wear­ing flo­rals for spring might sound like a tired fash­ion trope but it’s still a win­ning formula. Beau­ti­ful, fresh, flo­ral prints sig­nify the start of a brand new sea­son — and that does some­thing to the mind; a feel­ing of change, shift­ing to a more pos­i­tive and ra­di­ant style as tem­per­a­tures start to warm. But rather than be over­whelmed by the flo­ral prints on of­fer, stay fo­cused. Zero in on wall­pa­per flo­rals, the sort your grand­mother might have had plas­tered on her sit­ting room walls. Lib­erty, the masters of the mi­cro flo­ral print — de­spite chang­ing trends — con­tin­ues to in­spire the imag­i­na­tion via beau­ti­ful fab­rics and in­te­ri­ors. Dainty bou­quets add a point of in­ter­est to tex­tiles and, when pro­jected on to a lovely skirt or flut­ter­ing dress, it’s bound to put a spring in your step. Dan Ahwa
