REBECCA TAYLOR (New York) Blue Rose Print Dress

The cold and grey season is rolling along yet fashion continues to bring us flowers of alls shapes and colours. That’s right, floral fabrics are again one of the big fashion trends for AW2011/12 -- and more so SS2012. The lines of many big fashion houses include designs with flowers on them: roses, poppies, dandelions and chrysanthemums decorate dresses, blouses, skirts and even pants.
Flaunting a little blue rose print that’s neither too sweet nor too harsh, the combination of charcoal-brown background and painterly effect on this Rebecca Taylor dress makes for a feminine, versatile piece.
(RRP US$350)

This new season, floral fashion is in full bloom.

Trivia: Often portrayed in literature and art as a symbol of love and prosperity to those who seek it, blue roses do not exist in nature. (Traditionally, white roses have been dyed blue to produce a blue appearance.) The blue rose therefore embodies the desire for the mysterious or unattainable. They say “I can't have you, but I can't stop thinking about you”.
