Other collections with flowers : Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2007 (the silk dress of the finale of this « Sarabande » collection was covered with real flowers, such as hydrangeas, peonies and fresh roses), Cacharel (the Liberty print is Cacharel’ DNA and is present in numerous collections of the brand), Chanel (the camellia, which made its 1st official appearance in the Chanel collections in the 30s, was Coco Chanel’s fetish flower), Christian Dior (at the end of the 40s, Christian Dior, launched the « Lily of the Valley », his fetish flower, and « Tulip » lines, with floral prints ; Raf Simons paid tribute to Christian Dior’s love of flowers, a passion that he shares, by presenting the Dior Couture Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 Show in salons with walls covered with delphiniums, mimosas and orchids), Christian Lacroix (from 1987 to 2009, all his couture collections featured flowers), Gucci by Frida Giannini Autumn/Winter 2004-2005 (accessories line, re-issuing the « Flora » print, originally created in 1966 for Princess Grace of Monaco, after a Vittorio Accornero’s painting), Kenzo (since the 70s, flower-prints have been so essential for the brand’s designs that the 1st reviews of Kenzo Takada’s collections mentioned some « flower-dresses »), Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2011 (3-D floral prints), Léonard (since the 60s, Daniel Tribouillard has supervised the handmade floral prints that are present in all the brand’s collections), Viktor & Rolf Spring/Summer 2005 (this collection was dedicated to their « Flowerbomb » perfume, launched in 2005).
