Elegant Simplicity

Head of Sow Thistle about to flower
I've been looking at the trends for Autumn / Winter 2012.  A fair bit of fur, lots of embellishment and print, chunky knits, purple and quite a lot of understated elegance.  Year after year I have my favourite designers, Jil Sander, Lanvin, Balenciaga.  

This sow thistle caught my eye when I was out walking recently with it's elegant simplicity.  Grey green studded with purple and so beautifully made.

Beautiful! It would make such a nice color combination for the right scarf or shawl!
