Because I'm sick and tired of Flowers...

...I've opted for patterns for this spring.

Even the grand dame of fashion journalism, Suzy Menkes believes that there's just a lot of blossoming floral patterns for this spring. From Balenciaga, Stella McCartney, Missoni to Rodarte, Prada and Cavalli. Just too much, I'm having an allergy right now and I'd rather happily put my printed frocks splashed with different colours which is a must, must, must this season.

I love specifically the crazy but elegant patterns from Dries Van Noten (left), Vera Wang, Chaiken, Badgley Mischka and Pollini which is totally different from the religious use (or mis-use) of flowers whenever spring season comes along.

"There were so many flowery, sweet-tooth patterns, from hibiscus to rose, in the new season’s clothes that even I — raised on the herbaceous prettiness of an English country garden — longed to reduce the sugar quotient." ---Suzy Menkes on This year's Spring Collection.

We all know it's spring and we don't have to be reminded of flowers same as in the summer, we don't have to be reminded of the sun.
