The bow tie has been edging its way back into fashion for a few seasons now. Interpreted as geek chic, or vintage elegance, for FW13 the floppy, oversize printed bowtie is dandyish and glamorous.
From Ermenegildo Zegna to Salvatore Ferragamo, the bowtie has made a real come back and off the runways in FW13. Both elegant and a fun way to dress up a shirt and cardigan, the bowtie is a fundamental accessory in the FW season.
Floppy and actually tied in the way to resemble a large bow, with this novel bowtie the dandy spirit really comes to the fore. Printed silk jacquards in the form of paisleys and florals, the floppy bowties are statement accessories. The fringed edges give them a worn look, well loved, almost like a family heirloom.
The classic bowties is an undying friend to the short wearer. For FW13 classic is revisited in a more dandyish key in printed jacquard silks of bold colours.
Angular, smaller and with sharp edges, this bowtie looks apt to the white tie outfits of the grand ballrooms of the past. Dumb it down by wearing it with a shirt and cardigan.
