We may not be able to keep our houseplants alive for more than three days, but we can work a floral handbag like nobody’s business. This spring, the garden variety is in full bloom, and designers are coming up smelling like roses — and a million other flowers whose names we can never remember. Valentino whipped up wallpaper buds on structured top handle bags, Marni sent out bright, cartoon blooms on hobo bags and Simone Rocha gave us a floral bonanza of 3-D petals. Suffice it to say, the seed has been planted.
