Now that Paris Fashion Week has about reached its finale we’ve surveyed most everything floral recently seen on the runways. Our favorite inclusion of flowers came last night with Riccardo Tisci’s designs on the Givenchy catwalk. The designer succinctly harnessed the richness, exoticism and true beauty of orchids for both pattern and runway design. Using tropicals and purple orchid plants to decorate several runway portals in floral abundance, the overall design showcased the living inspiration for new and interesting clothing done in black-patent, see-through organza, and orchid prints.At Viktor+Rolf the Amsterdam-based fashion house stayed true to their favorite flower with a few sweaters featuring rose intarisas. The most recent edition since the giant sequence rose blooming on Natalie Portman’s gown at the Golden Globes appears to be the rose objectivitied – that is, the iconic bloom presented as if encased on the model's chest, a sort of object de curiosité to be artfully examined.Italian designer Giambattista Valli never shys from using punchy colors in Fall e.g. this overcoat incorporating a graphic mix of flower shapes shaded in pinks and reds that very much reminds me of this pink ombre centerpiece.Most of all, we admire when designers recognize that flowers are not only a Spring/Summer phenomenon. Countless varieties bloom during all seasons, so no wonder we find these dahlias – which we source locally in September and October – rendered by Belgian fashion designer Veronique Leroy for fashion house Leonard an appropriate print for Fall.
