modern floral design inspiration

Although the designs by Raf Simons were the reason for the show, of course, and they were glorious and ladylike, I can’t stop staring at the flowers designed by Mark Colle, an Anthwerp-based florist, for the Fall 2012 Jil Sander collection. Encased in lucite boxes, Colle’s arrangements feel like modern day Dutch still lifes. Couldn’t you imagine these on display at a museum wedding?
