It’s a bow tie bonanza

September 16th, 2007

“Learning how to tie a bow tie really well is the first important step in life” said Oscar Wilde. I don’t actually possess this skill, so it’s lucky that the bow tie I bought last week comes ready tied. It’s a 3.1 Phillip Lim bow tie belt that I got via ebay and I’m completely obsessed with it. I’m wearing this baby with everything.

More conventional (that is, neck residing) bow ties were all over the winter collections, look:

(D&G, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Roberto Cavalli, D&G)


(3.1 Phillip Lim, Luella, Moschino, VPL)


(3.1 Phillip Lim, Roberto Cavalli)


and finally, some excellent bow tie flickr photos (click on image for links to originals).
I told you I’m obsessed!

    i love bow ties too-although i’m currently going through a bowler hat stage in a big big way so i’m not entirely sure it’d be a good idea for me to wear both at once.
    your belt is fantastic. the wheels in my brain are turning as to how i could possibly make one now.

    kirsty – I wish I could pull off a bowler hat! Most hats look ridiculous on me :(
    You could definitely make a bow tie belt though, all you’d need is a normal bow tie and a longer ribbon.

    Jon – You are too kind! Thank you!

    Flic – Thank you!!!

    Ahh it’s perfect! Phillip Lim just keeps getting more and more amazing.
    And I’m so lame but I’d so keep the box forever.

  6. Love the new site and blog.

    I can never pull off a bow-tie. I own about three and only think I’ve worn one. Once. I had no idea they were in again. I may try and wear one untied to my Auntie’s wedding.. Is that a done-thing?
