Andrew Yamato at the Easter Parade, NY, April 2012
The Easter Bonnet Parade down Fifth Avenue in Manahattan is a wonderful tradition that I experienced for the first time just this year. The event's sole purpose seems to be to get people to dress up and strut about - and to celebrate spring. Flowers and costumes and spectators and bow ties and top hats and fancy dress. The best kind of get together!
Mr. Yamato's classic spectators
Young and old were out to show off their Sunday best. Just look at the duds on this fella!
These guys had suits made of what seemed to be pure polyester, which usually makes me depressed, but, hey, they looked great!
Pure vintage. Wonderfully unusual colors remind me of Miami Beach 1940s.
