So today is the big day... England v Germany. I'm not normally a huge football fan, but the spirit and sheer energy of the World Cup has converted me a little bit! However, the incessant drones of those awful vuvuzelas are enough to drive anyone mad! - Give me couture and catwalks any day of the week.
Anyway, back to normality and this season has seen more diverse and expressive trends than ever before, one in particular being bright floral prints. Dolce and Gabbana featured this trend back in their S/S10 show, and despite already looking ahead to A/W collections, summer is not over by any means. So make the most of the sun and try a dose of flower power!
I'm really liking pieces that mix bright shades with occasional neutral tones, creating depth and enhancing detail. Here's a few snaps of a floral collage piece I put together, showing just how influential the D&G show really was.
