Masaki Okada [おかだ まさき / 岡田将生] attended the 2014 Okinawa International Movie Festival on 23 March 2014, held in Ginowan City and Naha City on the Japanese island of Okinawa. The Japanese actor attended the press conference for his new film 'Oh! Father', and wore a flowery ensemble from Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2014.

Masaki was definitely feeling Spring in the air with all that floral prints. Hands on my heart, Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2014 is my favourite menswear collection this season. It is often difficult for men to wear floral prints, but I love each and every look that was presented on the show. It is not just the floral prints and embroideries, but also the flattering cuts and textures and beautiful styling which made the looks credible. I would not attempt to wear all the pieces together, but I must say Masaki Okada looked really good there. The healthy glow, his ease and confidence made the look work in his favour.

It was definitely a well coordinated styling exercise for Masaki Okada and co-star Shiori Kutsuna. Both in full on bloom, but not to be biased, Masaki Okada won the contest (if there is one...) with three separate pieces of floral on floral.

I really really love this collection. Besides the varying floral prints in most pieces, the collection also referenced some historical oriental motifs. Many designers have attempted to incorporate the oriental elements in their collections, and I can see why, with the Far East being a huge market for the luxury goods industry now. Please do not get me wrong, I am not suggesting that Dries Van Noten is jumping on the bandwagon, but many designers have attempted and the results are gaudy. Dries Van Noten Spring Summer 2014 is by far, the best for me in terms of referencing these elements. He managed to make the ancient fables appear so modern and current.

There is also a Dries Van Noten retrospective held in Paris now, which I am dying to see. And in a perfect world, I would be wearing Dries Van Noten everyday (#LeSigh).
