There is nothing surprising about florals coming back every Spring (and sometimes, even sticking around for Fall). But this season, designers are reinterpreting the timeless trend in new, fresh ways that will make you fall in love with the print all over again.
The dark side
Soft pinks usually come to mind when it comes to floral, but we love the idea of a floral print on a black background, for a modern, edgy effect. Antonio Marras went for a delicate blue print, while Dries Van Noten and Balenciaga opted for bright, punchy flowers.

Blues were everywhere on the runway, making the print reminiscent of a young princess’ wardrobe; the shade brings some kind of masculine side to this ultra-feminine print.

Flowers à go-go
Who wants to be a Mad Men girl? Florals took a sixties twist at Miu Miu, Balenciaga (whom played with 2017’s new Pantone color) and Prada, making the print surprisingly modern and fun.

Yellow is one of the season’s hottest colors, and it found its way into some of the most talked-about collections. While Bottega Veneta and Gucci played with a romantic vibe, Marni’s print felt artsy and youthful.

Graffitis, pops of neon, appliqués… Designers had fun with florals!
