Retro is back ..

2018 Dolce & Gabbana’s dolce vita aesthetic saw roses on dark backgrounds combined with swirling geometric prints. Marc Jacobs sent models down the runway wearing psychedelic floral dresses and coordinating headscarves. Of course, Gucci was not to be left out of the throwback trend. Retro florals were mixed with Alessandro Michele’s eccentric, maximalist mash-up.

When it comes to picking a print, the key is to embrace the retro sentimentality, no matter how big, garish or curtain-like the print. In fact, just like grandma’s wallpaper or eccentric aunt’s sofa it’s a good thing to have a knee-jerk reaction to a retro flower pattern. If you could picture the bold floral as a cushion in an old-school living room, you’re on the right track.
