Taking our favourite florals into the new seasonRead more
After an unpredictable summer, our go-to designers are carrying its favourite floral print into the new season – adding darker overtones for autumnal romance. AW20 is all about dressing to your own agenda; opting for playfully printed pieces that are perfect for home hosting or for weekends away. With 2020’s enduring penchant for midi-lengths translating to easy autumnal wear - this is how you do cold weather florals.
Add Hints of Victoriana
Hints of Victoriana balance this ByTiMo dress’s frivolous florals with winter’s creeping darkness – we love the bibbed, high-neck front and broderie anglaise detailing.
Embody Nocturnal Glamour
For untamed imagery and moody silhouettes, look to Dries Van Noten. Plucked from the nocturnal glamour of the designer’s AW20 runway, this silk gown does floral the grown-up way.
Explore the Night Garden
Needle & Thread makes a convincing case for peach roses in autumn with this ruffled mini-dress. The botanical graphics glow against inky black chiffon – ideal attire for cosy suppers when it’s dark outside.
The Year-Round Floral
RIXO reigns supreme in the art of the year-round floral. The Mimi dress is an ankle-grazing maxi in the brand’s new rainbow-splattered Smudge print – the perfect pairing to AW20’s stompy punk-inspired boots.
Add Artistic Elements
Inspired by ancient tapestries, this season Shrimps’ signature Sylvia dress features hand-drawn sketches of foliage and mysterious figures on horseback. The dungaree-style straps make it the ideal top-layer to winter knits.
The Modern Gothic
Being married to Nick Cave, the Prince of Darkness, gives The Vampire’s Wife designer Susie Cave a unique perspective on all things eerie. In the iconic ruffle-hemmed silhouette that has won the brand world-wide adoration, this dramatic maxi takes Liberty florals to new gothic heights.
