Perhaps some of you may remember that I love Sabina Nieto's work… Here are some wonderful Boutonnieres she made…
BOUTONNIERES — (the other shoeshine)
For gents, dandies, gals, and men of yore.
In reinventing the traditional newsstand, these boutonnieres are a play on the sidewalk grooming of yesteryear, befitting in our time of modest and home-made flourishes.
With a site-specific reference to the stand featuring the sale of live gardenias where the Powell Street trolley turns-about at Market, these candy-colored and dried flowers remain ageless for lapel enthusiasts. Let these serve as a thoughtful detail, complement to the bustle of street-side sweets, tobacco, and newsprint.”
