I've really been enjoying the English floral trend I've been seeing lately, which is surprising even to me. The difference between good floral and bad is all in how it's updated for modern audiences. Sam Pickard's pretty textiles are a striking mix of black and white line drawing with the addition of digitally precise splashes of color. The effect is subtle enough to keep your eye moving over the entire motif, but interesting enough to keep you staring at it's delicate detail. And I love, love, love the large black splotches that look like spilled ink. Nice touch.
