Floral Spring

One of the things I like the most about Spring is that every thing is blooming again: flowers, trees and fabrics. As you might be aware, when winter falls, hues fall with it. Not only the days seems gray but clothing is rule by dark and sad colors. But when see sun ray that brings back the green and see that first leave blooming, you know what is coming… A garden and stores full of bright patterns, and my favorite the floral fabric patter.

As I looked over the spring collections for this year, I chosen a few pieces that caught my eye from some known designers. The pieces go from everyday wearing to cocktail dresses, finishing with a night-gown.

3.1 Phillip Lim

The american with chinese roots impress me very much with his modern style. Pieces with cutting edge lines but keeping it classic with some jeans and flower patters. I really liked the mix and I’ve chosen these two pieces which I liked the most.

Vivienne Westwood

Since I met her back when Sex and the City was still on air, she blew me away with her out-of-the-box style. The english fashion designer still inspire and shock us with waves of great looks and a lot of asymmetric pieces. Here are my favorites from this season’s line.

Zac Posen

Last, but no least. This designer has fill the season with body tight cocktail and cinderella gowns, taking romanticism to the next level. I specially love the puffiness of the dresses, as a really celebration of fairy tales. Here I leave you with a dress and a gown.

One of the streets that I frequently walk by in Barcelona is Passeig de Gracia. Since I work in one of the building I love to walk over and take pictures of my favorites showcases.

Recently a new designer store opened and it caught my eye immediately: Max&Co boutique. For those like me that don’t know who they are, they are a retail project from the Max Mara Fashion Group. It was launched on 1986, they have dedicated to real fashion-conscious woman eager to put together a personal style with their clothing, accessories and why not?… Ideas.

There is a sweet feeling about the showcase, might be the pastel color, the soft fabrics of the clothing or just the lighting that makes me want to enter and buy every item of the store. The official opening party took place past April 12th where they invited the renown names in Barcelona’s fashion spotlight.

Even though the temptation was not bearable, I decided better to browse their web to find more about the Sprint collection and look for more unique pieces. One of the first thing that I looked for was this pair of floral print trousers and shirt that I saw in the showcase. The silk floral fabric is perfect for spring time, fresh and loose.

I also notice another items that caught my eye. A soft blue dress that I find perfect for a Sunday garden lunch, with printed silk ballerinas and eye-popping yellow maxi-bag.
