#IntheCart: Dark floral
Last year designers proved that florals don’t always have to be girly and bright. Moving into the winter months, prints continue to take on a darker mood, blossoming from black backgrounds with a riot of botanical-inspired prints. It strikes the right balance of romance and edge for transseasonal pieces.
Joining the darker palettes are longer hemlines and gothic-eseque prints. This season Erdem led the charge with power patterns on their catwalks, Marchesa created whimsical princess dresses while Christopher Kane wove tapestry into his looks.
