Celebrity Men in Floral Prints: rapper A$AP Rocky;  rockstar Jimmy Hendrix; UK rapper Tinie Tempah; menswear editor Nick Wooster

 

Floral – a print that was thought to be for women only has beautifully made its way into menswear. It's always been around, but more commonly seen on Hawaiian shirts and in paisley prints on ties and pocket squares.  Now, it has expanded to so much more than just a vacation shirt. Why? It's the mood of the world, I suppose. I don't know if it's debut, several years back, was indirectly a political thing— making its way into designers hearts from the happy loving years of President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama being in the White House. OR Like many trends it could be based on the growing success of a particular designerand other designers being greatly inspired by their creativity and style (Etro maybe? They've always had prints, which is why I've always adored them so). Then there's the widespread expression that, "What Comes Around Goes Around", and perhaps it's the natural way of trends recycling themselves… a little 1960s – 1970s Jimi Hendrix swag never hurt nobody, right? Or lastly, one could guess the likeliest cause might be the natural need for more variety. With the menswear industry growing and more men spending time (and money) to uniquely outfit their wardrobe, they want more than just solid colors and stripes to choose from– floral is one of those options.

As a men's fashion stylist, I humbly recommend having atleast one floral piece in your wardrobe– a hat, a backpack, a shirt, or if you're really feeling yourself, a suit that can be worn as separates when you're feeling less audacious. From tonal to brights, Gucci slippers to Etro polos, I've custom chosen several pieces for you below…

New Jamaica Vibes + Round Frames.

For the past week, I've been jamming to the tunes of fellow yardie – Proteje. And I must say it's been quite refreshing. We all love Bob Marley, but I had been wondering when another artist would come along and offer a modern alternative. I did a little digging and learned that, "there's an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica" and artist like Protoje are leading the pack. It's a Reggae Revival. Stay Tuned for our Protoje interview.
