Erdem on the other hand, opted for florals, as part of the botanical prints. The grand and voluminous prints dominated the garments, leaving the base monochromatic and a bit neutral. The florals had a bit of a retro vibe, bringing back the nostalgia for the past decades, where the flowers were the most adored and desired print women's clothes. However, as part of the prints came the pretty undefined leaves and petals, in graphic drawings, present on the entire garment.

Best known for creations that are rich in volume and express great romance, Gianbattista Valli offered a bunch of choices for the upcoming spring/summer 2022 season. With a special nod to the florals, an important detail of the next season's fashion, Valli's designs were absolutely magnificent. For this, he found the inspiration in the flower gardens, especially the flowers with leaves, and masterfully transferred them onto the fine fabrics. And the color palette was quite stunning too. The flowers with leaves print were accompanied by beautiful pastels, making each piece an ultimate female's favorite.


Coming directly from the fashion runways, it is more than obvious and sure that the florals will have maybe the biggest dominance even next SS22 season. From the tiny and dense, to the big and oversized ones, the florals are definitely the print to go with.
