Emanating from a place of dark opulence, a masterful blend of heirloom silhouettes, rich brocades and a painterly palette, these gold dusted gowns spilling with midnight botanicals take floral into a decidedly non-girly territory.
On a predominantly dark base, rich textures are brought to life with sequinned motifs, embossed embellishment and gilded threads. Suffusing historical hints with a bohemian edge (we loved the nostalgic seventies take by Chloe for Fall), these pieces feel particularly fresh when mixed.
Look for a cohesive palette in likeminded shades of deep jewel tones or black and gold. If print on print feels too bold a statement, consider dressing only your maid of honour with this mood, and her surrounding girls in black lace or solid silk tints pulled from her print.
