New York fashion week: Floral print trends

Florals, like animal prints, are a catwalk staple, particularly in the Spring/Summer season. In the SS14 New York collections, 3 different floral trends seem to have emerged. The first was a surprising move towards darker florals, generally epitomizing autumn/winter, painterly florals in deep colour combinations have seeped into Spring. Sally Lapointe did an amazing job of working this trnd into her collection with aged looking watercolour style florals reminiscient of the painting style of Michelangelo and the Renaissance masters.

The second floral trend that caught my attention was the stencil style floral. A simple cutout floral silhouette on a block base colour, effortless but effective. A potential move on for the 90's grunge daisy we have been seeing so much of lately?(

The final floral trend from New York I want to focus on is the overlaying of florals on patterned, usually geometric, backgrounds.Polka dots at Oscar De La Renta, stripes at Nicole Miller and the popular grid print at Rebecca Minkoff. My favourite, however, has got to be Clover Canyon, with its striped/geometric shape backgrounds, transparent overlays and floral motifs it is the perfect combination of 3 of the most popular SS14 trends.
