The Maurizio Galante Haute Couture Spring 2012 collection, presented at couture fashion week in Paris, is a dramatic garden-inspired line with floral headpieces and an earthy, wild palette. The collection, inspired by flowers, stems and leaves, is theatrical in nature and emulates the dramatic personality associated with haute couture lines.
The Italian designer featured looks that sought to imitate the chaotic, yet demure qualities of a garden, and utilized a variety of materials to recreate stems and flowers worn on the model's heads. The dramatized proportions, especially the top-heavy aspect of the looks, added to the feeling of earthy-charm. Several jackets that appeared on the runway had rosette detailing, which appeared to be the most functional interpretation of a flower bed.
