Fashion Forecast: Blossoming

So I thought I would take a break from chronicling the colours of Spring 2011, and instead feature one of the omnipresent prints: florals.  Florals are a Spring tradition in fashion-world, and this season saw them reinterpreted.  The small prints of last year were - for the most part - replaced by a style reminiscent of a botanical encyclopedia.  Carolina Herrera, Dries van Noten and Dolce and Gabbana followed this form, while the florals from Alberta Ferretti could have come from a Renaissance painting.  Alice + Olivia and Oscar de la Renta both chose a Betty Draper style '60s floral pattern, while Donna Karan and D&G were more evocative of the '70s.  All photos from http://www.style.com/.
