Hello, petal! Florals are everywhere right now, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down for next season. Embroideries materialised from top to toe (literally), from petal-strewn bags and biker jackets to ankle boots with look-at-me appeal. Clutches and jewels also upped the ante for AW17, with clusters of 3D sequins lending a dreamy, romantic quality to those after-hours looks.
