Why fashion loves flowers

dior-hautecouture

Flowers are much like fashion. They are beautiful, and they die young. Trends and flowers are admired and then discarded when they’ve faded out. Their short lifespan makes them precious. Like Leopardi said, “Death and fashion are sisters”.

Maybe this is why fashion loves flowers so much. Designers use them almost every season. In prints and as runway decoration. Dior has trusted in the powerful effect of a thousand flowers under Raf Simons’ reign, specifically orchids in the last Haute Couture show. And García Madrid created a beautiful space for the presentation of his latest collection. Little paper birds were attached to the branches of a tree, composing one of the most delicate and special ambients I’ve seen.

  1. Así como el personaje de el guardián en el centeno se preguntaba a dónde irían los patos del central park en el invierno yo me pregunto a dónde habrán ido a parar todas esas orquídeas blancas después del desfile….
    Y sí, las flores son a la moda como al arte en general, summertime sadness ♡♡♡

  3. Pero solo flores…. prefiero los molinillos de papel. El olor de las flores puede ser maravilloso e insoportable al mismo tiempo: Me gustan las orquídeas, pero no he conseguido que me duren. Tampoco se si huelen. Empiezo YA a estudiar ingles. Este es el primer paso
