Abundance of Florals

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: May 6th, 2011

Florals might not be to everyone’s taste but floral print is big this season I mean big, there’s no escape from it I tell you, mark my words you’ll love it.

This Benetton’s Spring Summer 2011 flower power ad campaign shot by Josh Olins, became an instant inspiration for my wardrobe and my mix and match floral print styling project which I had done for my personal blog not so long ago, I was lucky enough to borrow a rail full of press samples at my local PR to play dress up for my experimentation.

I experimented the looks by mixing various items together – blouse, tops, skirts, dress, even turning a bag as form of a hat and shirt twisted into a headpiece. The result? I went slightly overboard with the styling and it shows that mixing patterns can be fun as long as you know how to balance it in the right way. Would you wear it like this? I would.

You don’t have to go that far with the styling if it isn’t your cup of tea, you could simply wear a basic white t-shirt paired with a printed shirt buttons open and printed skirt whatever pleases you.

Go on… visit your nearest Benetton store and grab an armful of prints to play dress up in the changing room.

 Flower Power

by United Blogs of Benetton on: March 11th, 2010

There have been a disturbing abundance of entries where baring flesh seems to be the preferred method of grabbing attention which isn’t exactly thought provoking.

Yet, Mary Benjamin from Mexico in her ditzy floral print bikini set seems to be chanelling an attitude that isn’t screaming Look at my bod! and clicking through to her profile, it turns out she has a penchant for a plethora of florals.

It’s Paris Fashion Week at the moment and the French brand Cacharel, famed for its use of Liberty print florals has just been given a slick makeover in its A/W 10/11 collection that unleashes new life into a pattern that can look tired.

I’m thinking Mary Benjamin might also enjoy having a gander at the pieces.
