March 12, 2014

Oversized corsages showed up on the runway for Fall 2015, adding a retro element to coats and suits. Why wait for next year, when you can bring a bit of much needed spring into your wardrobe, while you impatiently anticipate the change of seasons?

Dries Van Noten added orchids to the shoulder of his not so basic black dress.
