If there is one trend that has consistently popped up on the Couture spring 2013 runway, it would be all things garden and nature inspired.
At Chanel feathers spilled from messy bedhead hair reminiscent of a bird’s nest. Alexis Mabille’s frothy confections always exude a girlish femininity, with each gown looking like an exuberant bloom. One such piece featured a crowning focal corsage on the right shoulder. At Dior, Raf Simon’s girl looked like a modern day Alice in Wonderland. Her setting was a maze and she was dressed in exquisite peplums and a palette straight out a summery fairytale. A standout embroidered cocoon design was covered with blooms. It was delightful butterflies and birds on tulle under an exquisite piped cape that made for a charming cage like structure.
Birds, butterflies, flowers and feathers, the perfect makings of the perfect garden party.More trend spotting.
