Inspiration: Men’s Spring Style 2012

Joe Lupo's Spring Inspiration Board (click to zoom in)

I always say that the first phase of any creative process is to get inspired. I know I’ve shared with you each season’s inspirations for fashion and lifestyle. This spring, I’m obsessed with the bold use of color and the plethora of magnificent accessories. I love the sophisticated layering that makes every look complete. Of course, I believe that even if it’s not in your budget or not necessarily a reality, inspiration is key to manifestation. Don’t mind the Patek Philippe in the center of my dream sequence. –Joe
