Where all things beautiful collide

Tag Archives: Creatures of the Wind

Spring has officially sprung as of yesterday, and I couldn’t be more ready for it!  With the fall/winter 2016 fashion shows wrapping up a few weeks ago, a surprising trend has remained in my mind, and is inspiring me now: fall florals.  You all know how much I love flowers, so this trend makes me a happy boy!  When you think of blooms you usually think of spring, so what better time to share these beautiful fashion looks we have to look forward to this autumn.  The trend really exploded in London, and was seen a bit in Milan and Paris, and when I looked back at New York, it was more about plants and greenery instead of flowers.  Ginkgo, fern, and tropicals collided with roses, lilies, and tulips.  An abstract take on flora was even seen on runways like Proenza Schouler (I might be the only one who saw it that way), as well as ditsy prints at Altuzarra.  The best part of all the plant life was all the different ways it was rendered, from embroidered, in lace, metallic, and in a painterly way.  Happy spring!

I’m constantly absorbing ideas and inspiration, always reading a new book or flipping through the latest issue of a favorite magazine, and spending countless hours researching online, so I have a lot in my brain at all times.  If it’s a fashion month then the brain space is even less…so what does that all mean?  I have a lot to share!  Most of the time I’m able to create a blog story that makes total sense from the images I find, while other times I have a bunch of random things that I just like and don’t know quite what to do with.  Every once in a while when I look at those pictures long enough a theme pops up from them.  That just happened when I was looking through my photo files comprised of a lot of the recent spring 2014 collection looks.

Metallic copper, bronze, and gold, wheat, rust, and deep oxblood tones were all over the place.  I love these shades for fall!  All of these looks and some favorite rooms by Tom Scheerer and Stephen Sills together have become my autumn obsession.  Add in my always favorite faux bois, picked up on dinner plates by Alessandra Branca, and on a copper breastplate at Proenza Schouler, and you have some great fall inspiration!  I was also reminded by a photo from backstage at the fall 2012 Chloé show of how much I loved that collection, and that taking a look back every once in a while can bring all new creative thoughts.  I’ll let the images speak more for themselves, but I plan on making this a new series to give better insight into what I’m loving and obsessed with throughout the year.
