We’ve decided that today is a day for celebration. Not only did we make it out of January and February without freezing, our wardrobes also prevailed and as it’s now 2nd March, we’re pretty much calling it spring. Now, we know that some of you in the UK are experiencing snow storms (what is going on?!) but that just gives you all the more reason to start plotting your sunny season togs to keep your mind off those blizzards. And who better to show off a seasonal saviour than Daisy Lowe, who gave us all a spring in our step thanks to her floral frock at the Roberto Cavalli show?
Joining the likes of Anna Dello Russo and Amber le Bon on the FROW, Daisy showed off her pretty petal print dress, complete with pussybow neckline. The gown was designed by Cavalli (natch), and was enough to have us running for the flowerbeds. Luckily, the high street is inundated with bold blooms to brighten up our rails, meaning we can all channel Daisy’s dress. We reckon (snow permitting) that we can start rocking them now, too. Long sleeved styles can be worn with a cosy gilet, while the longer length means we can all get away with our thickest tights underneath. Also, all the cool girls are wearing theirs with ankle boots, perfect for keeping your toes toasty warm in this weird weather.
As for the Cavalli show itself, it was the usual helping of Italian glamour, seen in flowing, printed maxis and lashings of leopard print. But, there were elements of this collection that felt fresher and slightly more modern than we’ve seen in the past. For one, we’re completely obsessed with that oversized parka jacket, while the fluffy blue sweaters and mini skirt combos left us swooning. There were nods to the East in Cavalli’s prints, too, while the decorative detail on clothes included fringing, embellishment, beading and embroidery.
How’s that for a fashion feast? So while we deliberate over the weather forecast, we’re off to choose our maxi of the moment, and we’ve even listed our faves below to let you do the same. It might not quite be spring outside, but at least our wardrobes are embracing the new season…
