The Frances May Church & State Collection Displays Dark Petals

This Frances May collection has been released as a part of a highly fashionable collaboration with Portland's design experts Church & State. Although the pieces are being displayed via Frances May's Spring 2014 apparel line, the duo has put together a markedly muted and monochromatic lookbook.

Paired with the black and white images of petals and flowers in full bloom are dark shades, all of which match the laid-back and at times gloomy vibe that comes with each image. The snapshots were orchestrated by photographer Caesy Oney who certainly remained true to the project's alluring offbeat nature.

Each dress in this series has also been named after the grandmothers of the designers, adding personal elements to button-down frocks and bow-tied maxi dresses.
