Exotic floral patterns and extravagant retro prints dominate the latest photoset by Thomas Lohr for Achtung Magazine. The German photographer captures models Jakob Wiech­mann and Peter Bruder in this high-fashion editorial, as they sport ensembles from stylists Markus Ebner and Win­nie Placzko.

Highlighting some of Givenchy's best from their Spring/Summer 2012 menswear collection, which relies heavily on a "birds of paradise" theme, the shoot shows that prints are indeed the "must have" of the year. Patterns that were once reserved solely for vacation wear and retro parties are now being tackled by top designers like Versace and Burberry, and as models Jakob and Peter show in this editorial, they make for stunning looks on and off the runway.

As a longtime fan of what were once considered "kitschy" patterns, I couldn't be happier to see tropical florals and elaborate prints making their return to the fashion world. After taking a look at these shots by Thomas Lohr for Achtung, I'm sure you'll be embracing this hot menswear look!
