Who Gives A Wang

Last year I plucked the petals and courage to populate my wardrobe with a subtle flare of florals. Designer Frankie Morello exploded the print in electric shock manner and 80's attitude into full body suits, shooting colour all across the male framework. It was a bold and playful idea, but like a rose, it was beautiful and a little sharp to the touch and tastes for everyday. So my attention has turned to Alexander Wang, whose t-shirts practically melt to the eye with the minimalist draping. I love the urban attitude that comes from the spring simplicity, and it's been one of the materials I've recently been dipping into. Prada also encourage construction-free tops in their collections that's just as impressive. And take the t-shirt I'm wearing below, where the flower pattern mists almost invisibly like the design is being seen underwater. I like to think it's another floral introduction and stemmed twist to the ever blossoming male wardrobe.

    I definitely could not get away with a floral shirt (....or could I..?) But, there is something Hedi Slimane cool about it on you... ☆

  15. I'm not so sure, I think your particular print is not dissimilar from a top I own... but the idea of florals on men as a concept isn't something I'd throw away! Perhaps you could experiment more with smaller print? Paisley even... more abstract and I could like it. This is meant to be constructive criticism, not an insult of course :) jazzy ♥
