Hedonist Florals

There's a castle of suitcases and cardboard boxes around me right now, as I tackle the ultimate puzzle of delicately cramming a wealth of clothes into only a few bags. One of the rewards though comes from the rediscovery of once loved tops and styles that somehow hibernated for a few seasons. The flower print petals just needed a light dusting in order to blossom again at the forefront of my wardrobe. And if Frankie Morello's recent collection is anything to go by, floral prints have transformed into electric shock kaleidoscope arrivals and revivals for the daring man.

While the floral camoflaged suit might be a little intense for my tastes, I'm really drawn to the psychadelic shapes and swirling colours that come from the acid flower graphics. And this trend couldn't have come at a more relevant time to my updated tastes and career moves. My bohemian budget isn't of the calibre to afford Italian suits, but shirted looks can be just as slick and polished with the careful and subtle interpretation of colour blocking and floral prints. If anything, the upcoming brand Leitmotiv beautifully illustrate this, with hints of floral patchwork that are encrusted and stained into the outfits. I love how the clothes embody an anorak lizard sort of texture, accomodating for wet winter weather, but with the subtle floral flare remaining. A name to watch in menswear most definately.

  2. Well aren't you just adorable! I think I'm kind of a little bit in love with your hair.... the bold block colours look great, especially broken up by the floral jumper :)

  23. I have to admit that you are the best man among any other I know who writes and shows fashion the way you do. You are very inspiring. The way you copied the floral trend from the runway- perfection. I will obviously follow you only because you feel fashion as nobody else. That's my opinion.
