The concept is so simple it should almost fail. But a bed covered in rose petals doesn’t have to sink into romantic cliches; not when Aline Weber is your muse and styling by Irina Marie brings a different kind of romance that’s feminine without being frou-frou.
Lace and crochet the colour of clotted cream have a feeling of summer idylls, espeically when paired with a rustic milkmaid braid. Away from the bed of roses, though, they’re also perfect pieces for summer layering: a crochet bodysuit or lace slip is pure romance on its own, but adds a little slice of the idyllic when worn under, over, or in between.
