Butterflies have always been popular in design but they’ve generally been more confined to girls’ bedrooms and children’s clothing. Lately I’ve noticed these beautiful winged creatures popping up more and more from haute couture to contemporary interiors. Valentino’s Pre-Fall 14 collection included beautiful embroidered butterflies and even Alexa Chung was seen wearing a gorgeous Valentino butterfly dress at Milan fashion week.

Kristjana S Williams’ prints are full of fantasy and wonder and depict all sorts of magical winged creations. You’ll also spot plenty of lovely butterfly designs in the latest Spring Collection from Osborne & Little. So what do you think, will you be falling for this trend too?
