Jane’s Vanity offers a garden of wonders with new loungewear in amazing botanical prints.
Botanical illustration has been around a long time. It can be traced back to the Greeks in the first century CE. The launch of the Age of Discovery in the 15th century created a passion for the visual representation of exotic flora and fauna. By the 18th century, advances in printing allowed beautiful floral images to appear on fabric as well as on paper. Artists continue to love the precise look of natural history illustration, even as they push it in a bolder direction.
F.R.S. (For Restless Sleepers) presents a bouquet of floral designs in silk. The Huge Nymphaea Duster Jacket wraps the wearer in white magnolia blossoms on a field of red and ties it all up with a satin bow at side. The Cabotine Plumeria Peignoir Jacket floats white and pink blossoms across a field of gold and trims it in deep green. The Twill Magnolias Asymmetric Shirt stuns with a background of robins-egg blue that offsets magnolias on the wing. The Potter Flared Trouser spins a Renaissance tapestry of flora and fauna.
Morpho + Luna, in collaboration with artist Tom Gallant, continues to beguile with the Orchidae Collection. A print of hummingbirds, butterflies, and orchids populate the aqua-colored silk of their Bianca Robe, Colette Pajama, and Nico Slip.
Olivia Von Halle chooses a background of lustrous black silk to show off cascades of bright anemones for her maxi-length Hero Violetta Dress. Love the snaps down the front.
And black lace accents the swirling floral design of the Violet & Wren Ultra Blue Peony Silk Gown. Wide straps beckon to a flirtatious yolk of lace above a plunging back.
