Professor Green's Dries Van Noten Floral Print Top - London Street Style

Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh were pictured around London earlier this week. Professor Green wore a black leather bomber jacket with contrasting suede sleeves, over a floral / ferns print top from Dries Van Noten, dark denims and matching Puma sneakers.

When I saw the picture a few days ago, I thought his floral top looked familiar but I just could not find a match. Until today when I was flipping through a magazine and I saw a similar print shirt, and it clicked. The floral top was not presented on the runway show, but it did gave me the opportunity to revisit the collection. That is the problem when collections are presented a whole six months before they hit the shop floor, and old age is failing me. It was lovely to go through the pictures again, Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2014 is really gorgeous. Lots of florals and silk, but not difficult for most men to wear. I love vibrant colours, and some pieces have this gold fabric badge embroidered / sewn into them, I think I can hand over my bank account to them now.

Personal liking of the collection aside, I like the simple laid back look from Professor Green here. I like to build contrast with clothing, akin to how they layer a biker jacket over a lace dress on womenswear, which I love. The florals softening the tough leather bomber jacket, not exactly groundbreaking or earth shattering, but I like to think there is balance and harmony.

I am not sure if Professor Green wore the Dries Van Noten t-shirt or the sweatshirt, but I am tempted to say the former. You can find both items, alongside a really great selection from Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2014, online from The Corner.
