Floral Fashion Friday: David Lee Holland

Wearing fabulous and floral fine jewelry is even more enjoyable when you can be confident it was handcrafted in an entirely non-toxic process from beginning to end. David Lee Holland and co-designer Yannis Kyriazis specialize in creating botanically inspired fine jewelry with 100% recycled precious metal, natural colored precious gemstones and pearls, and conflict free diamonds. If you’re in the Birmingham area today, be sure to stop by Saks Fifth Avenue at the Summit and take a look at David Lee Holland’s fine jewelry collection and meet the noted designers behind the work; they are making a personal appearance today and their gorgeous collection is worth viewing (and wearing)!

If you’re not in the area, you still shouldn’t miss checking out David Lee Holland’s collection, so I’ve posted some of my favorites below. To see more of the collection visit the website.

Dior Fleurs

Written by: Jordan Staggs, intern

It was flower girl heaven at IHQ Wednesday when we stumbled across Christian Dior’s new fall couture collection, the entirety of which was designed based on—wait for it—flowers.

Designer John Galliano was quoted as saying, “I’m having a floral moment,” when creating the line inspired by Dior’s childhood home and gardens, Les Rhumes.

And what a moment it was. Vibrant colors and floral silhouettes graced the runway set up in the Rodin Museum in Paris, framed by a backdrop of giant parrot tulips that would make even Georgia O’Keefe swoon. The models’ hair wrapped in colored cellophane enriched even more the whimsical idea that each was an elegant upturned bouquet, and Galliano himself appeared bearing a straw hat, as a gardener tending his blossoms.

From daywear projecting the bold colors and shapes of daffodils, tulips, and peonies, to the drop-dead gorgeous black taffeta ball gown hand-painted with yellow pansies, the beauty of the garden was reflected on the runway with every stride. Clearly, Galliano’s latest endeavor is a winner in our book.

Floral Fashion Friday

Saturday kicks the Triple Crown races into gear with the famous “Run for the Roses”– the Kentucky Derby. While the Derby is known for being “the most exciting two minutes in sports,” the association between this race and elaborate, wide-brimmed (and sometimes ridiculous) hats is also impossible to ignore. Each year, women who are going to the Derby spend countless hours putting together the perfect ensemble– and an attention-grabbing hat is considered to be the piece de resistance. So while you watch those incredible Thoroughbreds contending to be wreathed in roses at the finish line, also keep an eye out for the flowers, feathers, and frills that adorn the brows of the Derby’s excited attendants. It’s sure to be a show in itself!

For this Floral Fashion Friday, we couldn’t resist pulling together some Derby hats with floral flair:
