It's the end of summer, and with us just finishing the SS15 collections I'm not ready to say goodbye, I'm on a mission to hold on to summer for a tiny bit longer! After watching The Devil Wears Prada last night with a large bottle of wine, on a very gloomy English evening, the phrase spoken by Miranda Priestly fluttered around my head. "Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking!" As I sipped another unneeded glass, I asked myself. What is wrong with wearing florals in spring? It may not be spring now, but when the first sign of spring and summer arrives fashion mutates from deep, rich fabrics in luxurious burgundies, browns and golds to pastel colours, flower prints and playful, light fabrics. Florals for spring is as classic as a trench for autumn or a cashmere sweater for winter. Spring brings fresh flowers and beautiful blossom that fills the once bare trees. It's a sign of a glorious new season. It's s sign of summer holidays and weeks away from the daily work life. So why not celebrate the new season with a classic floral shirt? Florals at spring time may not be a groundbreaking movement that only fashion editors, models and muses follow, but it's something I certainly will be celebrating. Even when the English weather gives us nothing but rain & wind for spring and then summer, I'll be rocking the floral, because it's a celebration. A celebration of spring, and before I welcome autumn with open arms, I'll be holding onto floral wear for that tiny bit longer.
