A Floral Photo Shoot - How to Spend It Magazine

As the season turns colder, florals grow darker in enigmatic abstract prints and intricate embroideries, beautifully showcased in this stunning editorial by How to Spend it Magazine. Summer's most exotic blooms come to life in this captivating spread called ' New Florals', lensed by Damian Foxe in moody tones, featuring models Anushka Stupakoff, Mariah Morrison and Lucy Gascoyne who are styled with smudged blush and pale powdered faces, wrapped up with patterned bandanas. This modern inflorescence displays a fresh way to wear florals.


The trio of models wear graceful silk printed dresses by Temperley London that are painted with pink and purple orchids and elatedly blend in with leopard print.
