Inspired by bouquets of blooms and Monet’s garden landscapes the new Botanica Collection from Forever New offers fresh, new found femininity ...
The softest of flowers set against painted, flowering, garden landscapes conjures a delicate palette reminiscent of Ladurée macaroons; with shades of aqua mist, apricot sorbet, powder blue, lilac, petal pink and Chantilly cream.
Watercolour floral silk prints flow on evening gowns, with prom dresses featuring lace, crochet and delicate embroidery details. Flounces and ruffles create beautiful movement in the softest of shades, while blossom applique details are delicately feminine.
The gentle and romantic story is set off with sparkling jewels that are intricately detailed with petal shapes and ladylike pearls. Pastel rose-hued party heels and embellished modern box clutches provide the polished finishing touches for occasion looks.
Some of my favourite pieces from the Collection:
