An Israeli designer gives the boutonnière a modern comeback
Why should brides have all the dress-up fun? Grooms can add a bit of style all their own – and it all comes down to the details. The traditional boutonnière has had lapses in its popularity over the years, but one Israeli designer has taken the concept usually reserved for stringent special occasions and made it into a modern-day, stunning display, and an artful addition to any suit and tie.
Designer Omer Polak, who has made a career of unifying the senses with multidisciplinary products that dip into the worlds of design, fragrance, technology, visual art, and identity, has been creating curious and whimsical projects since graduating from Jerusalem’s Bezalel Academy of Art & Design.
He has a penchant for craftsmanship, quirk, and beauty all wrapped into one.
In addition to his bestselling boutonnières, which are available for purchase online (and boast free international shipping!) he also created an offshoot of the design into unique Ikebana vases – each one a beautiful table setting, perfect for brides and grooms seeking unexpected wedding decor that is not a typical offering, and also makes a truly memorable gift for guests.
Using raw materials of wood, brass, and marble as foundations in their most natural hues, Polak lets the true floral beauties shine and interact with their environment and composition.
