“She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand. I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had,” wrote American author Maggie Stiefvater. This poetic tribute to the warmer months calls for equally poetic dressing – flower-strewn frocks with billowing sleeves and full, calf-grazing skirts. British designer Erdem Moralioglu is a master of the romantic summer wardrobe, and this season his collection was filled with long, vibrant dresses of voluminous proportions – including a striking green, black and white collared frock. Equally eye-catching are The Vampire’s Wife’s yellow and white high-neck style and Dior’s sleeveless, botanical-printed look. Here’s our edit of the season’s best.
