Boys in Bloom S/S 2014Posted by Jo on Tuesday 13th August 2013
These blooms aren’t ditsy or discreet, they are full-blown blooms that command your full attention often teamed-up with tailored suits or athletic sports luxe cuts. Look to Gucci for Frida Giannini’s dark gothic-esque botanicals sprawling up and down slim-cut trousers and tailored double-breasted jackets. Not one for holding back Miuccia Prada combined a myriad of ideas and the result provided a number of exotic tropical prints that brighten up her dark base palette. Elsewhere Marc Jacobs presented matching floral print shirts and ties in pastel and bright shades.
Optimistic and somewhat brave for menswear next summer’s bold blooms look set to continue into womenswear and while the trend already came into play this summer the new bloom is bold, bright, and as we have just discovered, genderless.
