Flowerbomb

My quality of life would be severely diminished without the near-constant presence of roses. I love getting an obscene amount of cheap ones from street vendors and decking out my apartment like a Ziegfeld girls' dressing room. I love sleeping with a fluorescent rose print duvet cover and wearing rose print dresses with a spritz of Comme des Garçons' Rose. I also enjoy drinking copious amounts of sparkling rosé while watching Charlie Rose reruns on the internet at 2AM, but I digress. Roses were all over the Fall collectionsthe good ones anyway. At Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen they took the form of heavily embellished gowns. Balmain and Dolce & Gabbana presented eerily similar needlepoint motifs and Comme des Garçons absolutely killed it with their characteristically forward rose print coats. God I can't wait until all of these roses trickle down to Zara and H&M. 














The runway photos are from vogue.com which is totally kicking style.com's ass in terms of image quality and overall functionality. The photos of actual roses are by David Sims from the lovely Visionaire #40: Roses.

Roses symbolizes love and beauty, that's why every girls would love to receive a Rose from their love one's. The beautiful appearance can make the day happy and the smell can make every people fall in love. And using it as a fashion icon is a great idea.

The flowers did represent the feminine side of the models on the picture. No matter how the flowers look, they still put meaning to what we are seeing.

Flower Rose is the most well-liked flower. It gives a handful of meanings. It symbolizes love, adoration, friendship, femininity and many others. Bringing this into fashion is cool. Surely girls love this!

Flowers are so just so feminine that they cant catch the attention of every girl watching there.
