SS11 BOTANICALS


This trend looks on the one hand very familiar: floral dresses and shirts, but on the other hand, designers like Sarah Burton (for Alexander McQueen) and Charlotte Olympia took the idea of botanicals to a whole new level; grain-high heels, banana-shoes, and leave-dresses. It looked almost as if the models and nature became one…

Now I hear you think “nice trend, but where can I buy a dress made of leaves, or with citrus-prints without paying a fortune”? Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you have to go all the way as seen on the catwalk. Just be smart, and use the botanical-trend as a detail in your outfit: flower-band in your hair, a ring in the shape of a leave, and a straw floppy head. Nevertheless, you can also hit online shops such as net-a-porter, or the-outnet and get the real stuff! XO
