I enjoy the high art of Issey Miyake, but don’t always find the collections wearable. But these two, from the Spring 2015 show? I would wear these any day of the week.

The modern, clean lines and minimal colors of Narciso Rodriguez’  runway are exactly my style; yet I love how it captures the essence of the Sargent painting: romantic, effortless and full of movement.

Botticelli’s Flora from Primavera; source, Wikipedia

I’m not really a floral person; leather and sleek edges are more my style. But Nicole Miller’s Spring Ready to Wear 2015 has a few pieces I like. I love the way the tops manage to be floral and feminine without being cloying.
