Romance Is Not Dead, It's Fashionable.
I'm finding it very difficult to focus on Spring when the Fall preview is saturated with so many sultry and romantic references. The cascading floral embellishment is a dramatic yet necessary element in achieving this look of ages. No longer are the days of a "missy" cabbage rose isolated to flannel bathrobes draped over gandma's rocking chair. This going to be the cocktail stunner of the season because it is loaded with the things that make for a jaw-dropping entrance, not to mention Giambattista Valli's excellent use of texture & color.
