One of the best things about starting a new year is that we get a great excuse to renew our wardrobe, out with the old and in with the new! Since we’re constantly surrounded by flowers, one of our resolutions is to add more floral inspiration to our daily looks.
Here is our style Wishlist for 2019:
If you’re a Converse fan, you need to check out this amazing collection of retro sneakers from the iconic Chuck 70 line reworked with embroidered flowers. Bouquets of multicolored roses have been stitched onto the sides of the shoes, giving them an artisanal 1970’s feel. They come in amazing colors: “Turmeric Gold” yellow, “Washed Denim” blue, “Obsidian” navy, and “Punch Coral” pink (Coral is the Pantone Color of the Year, so the pink ones are probably going to be very popular).
These sneakers are a cool way to amp up your wardrobe and achieve a very effortless boho-chic look. A little flower inspiration in every step, that is definitely what we want.
We might be biased because Mercedes Salazar is from Colombia, but her jewelry designs are just irresistible. Her exuberant pieces are made by craftsmen and women in small towns where some of these techniques are a valued tradition, and the results are stunning!
Her latest collection includes designs that weave together insects, birds and flowers, all inspired by Colombia’s diverse landscapes.
We’ve got a thing for sustainability and we love other projects that make it their mission. Reformation works with fabrics that meet sustainable standards (plant-based, rapidly renewable, recycled, etc) and they even use vintage clothing to create new apparel.
Their wrap dresses look amazing, no matter the body type, that silhouette is just so delicate and chic that one of our goals is to give it more room in the closet. Right now, they’ve got some lovely styles with mini prints of flowers that give a sense of small town charm. Then add a strong lip color and some strappy sandals and you’re ready for the big city.
Another Colombian talent that has become a big name in the leather goods market is Nancy Gonzalez. If you’re a little extravagant and decide to invest in a good handbag, her crocodile leather pieces with floral inlaid designs are truly a must.
