After spending so many months at home in our leggings, sweatpants and basic tees, this season is about total everything! We want it all: Stunning scarves, wow dresses, show-stopping shoes, distinctive men’s formalwear — even our leisurewear is being taken to the next level. It’s a bold statement on the resilience of human nature as interpreted in haute style.
Aroids include many common houseplants like monsteras, peace lilies, philodendrons, pothos and ZZ plants. While many of these tend to be “low light” indoor plants, they’re often understory plants in the wild. The International Aroid Society aims to educate the world on these wonders of Mother Nature.
