“Florals for spring, groundbreaking,” deadpanned Miranda Priestly in the fashion-cult movie “Devil Wears Prada.”
Actually, flowers might sound a tad boring for inspiration, but to be honest, how many women don’t like to adorn themselves with a fresh, floral touch?
Co|Te designers Tomaso Anfossi and Francesco Ferrari offered their very personal take on the theme, showcasing a collection where arty details were mixed with more geometric elements. Flared skirts and poplin tops were printed with graphic flowers in vivid tones, while a striped cropped T-shirt with matching pants combined nautical stripes with rich floral embroideries of microbeads and sequins.
Koi fish were also embroidered on tulle shirts, their delicate attitude contrasting with the strong appeal of miniskirts crafted from crocodilelike leather.
