Sure, florals popped up on the spring runways, winding up on tuxedo jackets at Dolce & Gabbana, splashed across trousers at Michael Kors, and paired with paisley and stripes at Etro. But we were surprised that the traditionally femme prints have become so mainstream: Everyone from Paul Smith to Tommy Hilfiger is carrying man flowers.
