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.



British model Lucy Gascoyne wears an eye-catching arrow and floral print lace and silk organza slip dress by Christopher Kane.



Anushka Stupakoff wears Erdem's sultry interpretation of Summer florals in a yellow and black embroidered jacket and sheer-leg jumpsuit.


Dries van Noten struck an edgier note on styling florals this season, with cotton blend coats and slinky silk dresses, all outlined in a red and yellow tulip motif.

Oscar de la Renta colours in his ladylike summer frocks with polka dots and pretty blooms.



Shadowed flower shapes are embedded upon linen bandeau tops and pencil skirts in fern green and chocolate brown at Michael Kors.

Dainty minted dresses sketched with leafy greens and pink roses in duchess satin and silk make for a pleasing picture at Antonio Marras.



A tropical bouquet brings vivacity and sparkle to this rainbow-hued Vivienne Westwood Red label silk and sequin draped dress.


The femininity of Nina Ricci is maintained in petite lemon and lilac flower prints that gleam across silk cardigans, skirts and pleated dresses.

Swarovski crystals encrust these spectacular cerise and black Mary Katrantzou looks that awe-inspire with innovative design and a whimsical ruffled bodice dress.

Would you wear any of these boldly floral ensembles?

  9. Beautiful words as always Sam, you really are an amazingly talented writer, it's forever an inspiring and motivational experience reading one of your posts <3

    I love these editorials, the dark twists on florals are really enchanting. I steer relatively clear of florals-- mainly because I went crazy on them a few years ago and wound up OD'ing on them!! This has put me off, as I really look back and regret a lot of my fashion sense in those "floral fanatic" days. xo

  32. I'm afraid I'm not a huge fan of these bold floral prints, I have a couple of floral items in my wardrobe but they're more subtle. I admit these bold prints look good on some people but not on me. xoxoxo

  33. The pattern mixing of florals and polka dots and animal prints is a nice change. Love all the pieces by Michael Kors.

  39. All of those attires are absolutely gorgeous, each of them look so eye-catching and desirable. Floral prints are always look so feminine and appealing, to my mind there is nothing better for summer time, than a dress made of such light, floral fabric. Such a great post turned out, I enjoyed it very much! Well done, Sam!
    Have a good day;)

  57. I was hooked by the first picture, showing floral print blended in leo! I've never thought of this combo, and I'd totally wear it if I could find it (either on clothes or fabrics to make my own).
