Last summer, I went to a wedding in the South of France, where I took more pictures of the flowers than of the happy couple. The wonderfully unfussy wild daisy–and–snapdragon arrangements were designed by Flaminia Veronesi, and I was reminded of them when I saw the rambling floral prints and fluid silhouettes in the Philosophy pre-fall collection—the first from the house’s new designer, Lorenzo Serafini. The bohemian look isn’t novel, but given a punch of color, it’s refreshingly cheerful and fun.
