Garden party - Bloomin' lovely? We think so, says Annmarie O'Connor.
Spring’s floral offering is a bouquet like no other.
From escapist colours at Valentino to microscopic prints at Victoria Beckham and Chloé’s oh-so-pretty paisley nomad, the mood is softly sophisticated.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the garden, expect auxiliary buds bursting with colour like Dolce & Gabbana’s fertile muse and Michael Kors ode to joy.
Wallflowers need not apply.
Put your petal to the mettle this season.
