Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Goh on bringing florals to fall
The verdant gardens full of blooms and pretty petals have fallen on fall’s heavier tweeds and herringbones. Miuccia Prada’s brilliant sportif look for Miu Miu blends the best of both seasons in one outfit, bringing the notion of all-weather, all-terrain and all-season dressing to a whole new level of chic. I’m loving what Danish label ROTATE Birger Christensen is doing with this floral hybrid cheongsam (2) with the voluminous sleeves. The ultra short dress pairs exceedingly well with a pair of tweed trousers or skirt underneath, and an heirloom bag (1) to ground the outfit. Flip this look on its head by wearing a herringbone jacket (11) with a floral skirt (5) that’s refreshingly quirky and delightfully mismatched. A brilliant floral ring (12) lends a little stealth-wealth panache, while glittery ’40s-inspired platform sandals (8) from King of Glam, Michael Kors, will always bring out the showgirl in you. Add tinted glasses (7) for some mystery and finish off with a feather headband (3) because throwing caution to the wind is always on-trend.
