Prints Inspired by The Ballets Russes: Modern Love AW12

I am fascinated by these intricate prints in the Modern Love Autumn Winter 2012 collection. It is amazing to see the artwork (by talented designer Sarah Arnett) laid flat, and then how it appears on the garment. This season Modern Love is inspired by the provocative aesthetic of The Balletts Russes; Modern Love's interpretation of this bohemian time is elegant excess, opulence, and unrivaled fantasy.
