Cecile Duflot’s Floral Dress

Last week, the French Parliament was in a tizzy over a certain floral dress. Cécile Duflot, minister of territories and housing, received a particularly warm welcome as she approached the podium, with conservative lawmakers hooting and hollering with a charisma rivaling some of New York’s friendliest construction workers.

Apparently, French politicians are easily distracted and utterly excited by floral patterns, which is odd because that particular motif has a long-standing place in French culture. Tapestries and carpets from the famed French region of Aubusson date back centuries and often depict softly colored and delicately designed flowers and bouquets.
These antique Aubusson from Nazmiyal fits the bill nicely.
