Anyone following the Spring/Summer 2009 shows would have definitely noticed designers taking a cue from Mother Earth in the garments that walked down their runways. The accessories in these shows aren’t simply reminiscent of earthly hues—these key pieces seem to have been picked directly from the landscape. 

I was immediately taken with the feminine beauty of the floral accessories from Fendi in the bright colors that are all the rage this season. Diane von Furstenberg also gained inspiration from the garden, which then manifested itself into headpieces and jackets that are nothing less than striking.

Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Blumarine crafted pieces to look as if they were literally found objects from the beach or forest, but Gucci used beautiful agate stones to create their latest baubles.
