Here’s a riddle for you: is exotic skin all the more exotic when it’s been snipped and layered into a bona fide bouquet? Or should something rare look just that: unique?
As an object, this artfully cut arrangement of tropical flowers in the girliest of hues is undeniably a great feat of skin. It almost looks good enough to eat as a wedding-party pastry. And the multiple compartments and frame-top structure? Ladylike and to die. But frou-frou doesn’t even begin to cover the feeling I’m getting from this pink-and-purple explosion. My advice? Carry it with a permanent wink and your tongue in your cheek, or don’t carry at all. Available for pre-order at Neiman Marcus for $3,500.
Pair with: If you’re interested in playing flower girl at this garden party, do it with a dress that juxtaposes. Like Richard Nicoll’s piqué shift dress, with a boxy and directional silhouette. On Net-a-Porter for $743.
