Accessories, Designer Spotlight
By Laura on December 1st, 2010
If you haven’t caught wind of it yet, bow ties are making a big comeback at the moment. Finding the right one can be a bit of a challenge, but I recently stumbled across the amazing Pierrepont Hicks, and well…be prepared to have necktie envy.
Pierrepont Hicks was founded by an American couple, Mac and Kat. Mac apparently takes care of the numbers and Kat handles design, which she is no stranger too. With experience working in fashion + publishing in New York for over ten years, Kat has spent time at Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Gourmet + ELLE magazines.
There ties are all produced in New York, by master craftsmen, who practice traditional tie workmanship patterns. Apparently a single tie can take sixteen steps to create and they emphasize just how important it is not to skip a single step – something that is very evident in the craftsmanship.
