It's definitely not a look that’ll find favour with hay fever sufferers...

One of the more outlandish shows at Paris Fashion Week forced models to sashay down the catwalk with their heads embedded in bunches of flowers

The head-turning floral masks were the creations of Japanese designer Kei Nonomiya. And they proved a hit, with one fashionista writing on the Vogue website that the headpieces ‘complemented the dramatic power of the clothes’ in his autumn collection.

The designer is known for his mostly black Noir designs, which he says allows him to focus on the materials he uses rather than colour. Many of the dresses took their inspiration from nature, too, with designs resembling petals and flower-heads.

Mr Nonomiya’s Noir is part of fashion house Comme des Garçons.
