Roses were all over Fall collections

Here, in Lisbon, Alexandra Moura Fall/Winter 12-13 collection showed in the most important Portuguese fashion even - Modalisboa - followed the roses' trend with gorgeous pieces as you can see through the photos by Joao Lamares.

 But not only in the Lisbon Fashion week that roses are a real statement. At Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen they took the form of embellished gowns. Balmain and Dolce & Gabbana took in roses for their needlepoint motifs, but it was in Commes des Garçons that roses really brought me the best feelings with the absolutely amazing rose print coats.

Certainly, this will be a romantic Fall and it is obvious that fashion got the best feelings to face the hard times to come. In an uncertain and complex world, roses are the simple way to conquer the minds after de hearts.

             By any other name would smell as sweet;"

            I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see  in her cheeks;
         And in some perfumes is there more delight
                      Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. (...)
