Couture Fashion Week, Paris: The Fall 2017 haute collection show season proved to be just the circuit for Rodarte to unveil its Spring 2018 ready-to-wear offering, after decamping from New York Fashion Week. Far from being lost in the packed couture schedule, the fashion house made its mark. Before the ink dries on the full Vogue Arabia runway report, we simply couldn’t wait to bookmark an unexpected breakout trend fresh from the runway. For Spring 2018, team Rodarte deftly placed tiny bouquets of baby’s-breath flowers in arm cuffs, spilling out of chunky gold bracelets, and draped over models’ arms like shawls. It’s a simple styling touch that set next summer’s Rodarte collection alight, and what’s more, you can activate the look right now.
While some sprays of the frosty white blooms were sparingly looped through updos, key runway looks were topped off with headdresses comprising only flowers. If you’re less likely to wear a garland of botanicals to your next dinner party, give a nod to the look with small cuttings and tuck them behind your ear or pin a sprig in a hair clasp for a so-2018 twist.
