The Hill-Side AW13 Lookbook - “Twelve Brooklyn Apartments”
Hill-Side’s Cherry Blossoms
One of the most discussed topics of the season has been the power of patterns and prints and how to make the most out of them. Stepping out of one’s comfort zone is always a risk and when it comes to pattern, few men are actually willing to try anything other than checks and stripes.
Leading the list of the most frightening variations are floral prints: men just can’t seem to dissociate the backward thinking that flowers are for women alone. Sure, they’re inherently related to a more feminine side, but as individual style continues to push boundaries which were once set in stone, the time has come to get in touch with your anima.
To help you on that difficult task, several designers have been offering all sorts of floral printed garments, but for those more reluctant to try it, Hill Side’s got you covered. Is there anything safer than sporting this print in one of the manliest staples around? Their cherry-blossom ties do just that…while incorporating the ultimate floral silhouette (love them on Japanese sleeves). Also, check the pocket squares, bandanas and scarves.
