Floral, childish, loose silhouettes, 70s
No stranger to fabulous and exotic prints, designer Sophie Mechaly brings out the flower child in all of us while having fun with her latest Spring 2019 collection for Paul and Joe. Within the arrangement we are introduced to many loose and oversized pieces: from popover jackets, and shirts to crew necks and Capri beach pants.
Prints take the cake in this show, as the floral patterns tend to exuberate. On top of this, tropical dinosaurs, cats, and jesters dance around garments evoking feelings of playfulness and glee.
While the looks may come off a bit childish, a fusion of fairy tale and 70s vibes are created around the pairing of silk materials with the jester image and the royalty of the floral patterns. In turn when styled alternatively the garments take on a more mature appeal.
With that being said, leave it to a heartwarming brand like Paul and Joe to have you at a summer festival looking like a princess from a Grimm fairy tale or a natural beauty who just left the comfort of her garden.
