"With the spring," noted Mrs. Eric Pritchard in The Cult of Chiffon (1902), "comes naturally enough a tendency towards bright shades, seeing that `all the world is young,' and the buds are bursting forth into bloom; consequently tender tones of greens, yellows, pinks, and blues most strongly appeal to us. ... in the days when skies are blue and grass is green, we cast behind us the gloomy and cold tones of winter." Spring's irrepressible generosity is suggested in floral pattern echoed in the fly fringe's "virtual" flora.
