Fall Trendspotting: Take Your Flower Power to the Dark Side


From left to right: Rag & Bone, Christopher Kane, and Valentino

Not so fast — if there's one Summer trend that shows no signs of wilting, it's the floral print. Taking on a distinctly moodier refrain, this cooler iteration of flower power has everything to do with getting the best of both worlds. With just one look at the Fall 2012 runways, you'll instantly notice that a new batch of darker floral prints have cropped up. Rag & Bone showed off a slick tapestry floral in tailored coat silhouettes, Erdem sent out a graphic lace-infused bouquet design on everything from ladylike sheaths to structured suiting, Valentino put an overtly romantic spin on floral-embroidered gowns, and Christopher Kane made his flowers as bold and as oversize as the collection's rich color palette. Rest assured, your favorite floral prints have been given a new seasonal lease on life. To prove our point, we've handpicked some of the moodiest versions to shop now.
