Boss Hugo Boss: Dandelion snow
"After flowering is finished, the dandelion flower head dries out for a day or two. The dried petals and stamens drop off, the bracts reflex (curve backwards), and the parachute ball opens into a full sphere. Finally, the seed-bearing parachutes expand and lift out of it. The parachute drops off the achene when it strikes an obstacle. After the seed is released, the parachutes lose their feathered structure and take on a fuzzy, cotton-like appearance, often called "dandelion snow" - taken from Wikipedia.
Those academic and scientific explanations about the dried dandelion and the dandelion snow are
depicted excellently in the latest Hugo Boss Window display. The flower and it's snow are made from
metal in the color of silver, thus it would be not too feminine for a men boutique.
