These beautiful ex designer crepes and drapey fabrics have got my heart all a flutter. Dramatic florals that really stand out from the crowd. I’ve been pinning lots of long floaty dresses and pretty pussy bow blouses to my pinterest boards lately and these quirky, dark and dramatic prints really capture the mood I’m feeling this winter.
The flowers on this duck egg viscose crepe are prints of embroidered patches, take up the embroidery trend without hours spent embroidering them yourself..
This dramatic print features small red berries, giving it a Christmasy feel without limiting it’s wear to just a few short days in December.
This twill has the feel of a light silk and these dramatic florals almost jump out at you. Imagine a wide legged jumpsuit in this fabric…..
Another viscose crepe featuring embroidered patches, this time they are cute Chinese cats, bananas, dragons, you name it, it’s on here. I adore the quirkiness of this and cannot imagine much better than a simple shirt in this fabric to really let the fabric do the talking..
This chocolate crepe features large sprays of flowers, I’ve seen a stunning trouser suit made in this fabric and it looks even better made up!
According to fashion insiders spots are having a turn in the spotlight (do they ever go out of fashion?) these lightweight woven viscose have taken this trend one step further by adding floral to a classic spot.
