An oldie but goodie, this editorial styled by Nicola Formichetti for the very first issue of Vogue Hommes Japan has always been an inspiration for the way I dress. People underestimate the natural beauty that fresh flowers add to an outfit, and they add a touch of lightness and humor to fall’s dark threads. Best of all, flowers are cheap, and when snipped stealthily, they are free.
A yellow rose pinned on to a jacket lapel dresses up a look unlike any tie or pocket square can.
Perhaps it’s worth reconsidering (smaller) flowers on men’s hats?
I’m not one to post editorial after editorial on this blog, but when one still proves relevant more than three years after coming out, it sure is worth revisiting.
