I'm in love with all the flowers featured in S/S 12, from backpacks, customising boots, taped artfully across models torso to perspex clutches and small detailing. As well as beautiful items to use in a piece, the fact that flowers only last so long adds to the whole uniqueness and sweetness of it. Using raw, natural elements is such a brilliant idea, espesially using flowers in menswear. Being mainly interested in menswear, I love the fact that such feminine items have been contrasted with very urban accesesories.I've been working on 2 items for the last week based around the whole idea, and they should be done by the next post. The key is to work with basic shapes and material, and 'spruce' them up with the flowers. Can't wait to show you all! What trends have you been loving this a/w?

  4. Agreed, flowers always add such delicateness to a piece. Great pictures. I'm liking the new mid-calf skirt length which popped up in a couple of shows like Proenza Schouler and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
