“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.” – St Thérèse of Lisieux
colors taken from nature, we find, are a constant part of our fashion consciousness. the elegant hue of a blooming violet is no exception. the rich jewel tone has found it’s way into the limelight throughout the eras, from regal kings and queens of centuries past, to the technicolor dreams of the 1960s, to the no-holds-barred styles of the 1980s; and today, where modern silhouettes play with whimsical feminine sensibilities and bold pops of color. the color is always a refreshing pop of spirited brightness, no matter the time of day or time of year. this season we are seeing lots of swoon-worthy new looks that inspire us to take the purple plunge.
some of our favorite looks in violet loveliness (clockwise from top left):
Alice and Olivia’s Porla collared sweater is sweetly whimsical, kept fresh in brightly blocked violet and white.
our pulse is throbbing at these amazing lucite and crystal Orbit earrings by Alexis Bittar.
