At the Dolce & Gabbana opening I noticed a particular Bow Tie. It was a velvet bow tie and it dawned on me that the design was long time overdue until now. The next day I met Zak, he worked on creating the Velsvoir silhouette, a striking yet classic aesthetic bow tie, focusing on texture, cut and design. The inspiration behind these bow ties was to create a stylish piece which had character and personality, bringing the bow tie into a modern context.
The versatility of the bow tie is that it can be worn to compliment a range of different looks. But this year men are taking it to a whole new everyday aspect. The modern dandy, as reflected in our LC:M collections, is not afraid to mix and match heritage pieces. Thus wearing a bow with tailored jeans or colourful chinos.
With summer amongst us, light linens and printed cottons work well. Just choose your shirt and team it with a cardigan or a blazer and the effect is heart throbbing. More men are also wearing Bow ties with sweaters which gives it a nice casual touch.
Equally, the classic velvet bow is a staple for gala events and soirées. There is no longer to shy away from this powerful accessory. Make sure it’s loud, bold and a reflection of who you feel to be in that given moment.
