Lanvin Neckties and Bowties for Autumn/Winter 2011

By Laura on May 23rd, 2011

Lanvin has giving the necktie an interesting spin in their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection combining silk and wool splits. As you can see above the long end of the necktie is finished in a wool. Similarly, the bowties have a wool application that personally I think sits well with the silk. What do you think? Would you wear these split neckties?

burton dress shirt pleat bib bow silk sale.jpgBurton’s sale is now on and they’ve got lots of great reductions including houndstooth waistcoats, the limited edition Ben Sherman overcoats and a good selection of knitwear.

Top of my list however is this bib front dress shirt, it might seem a bit frivolous but how often can you get a shirt like that complete with silk knots and bow for £12?!

Snap up this sale bargain and wear it on an everyday occasion with grey trousers and a burgundy cardigan for a smart outfit with a dash of style.

Caviar print ties from Etsy

Expressing yourself through the medium of a necktie is a dangerous thing. Thankfully Toybreaker’s screenprinted ties are million miles away from the novelty Winnie the Pooh/Simpsons/Taz/Whatever ties that you see reluctantly balding middle managers wearing on the tube into work.
The Caviar range depicts a smattering of your finest fish eggs over slim silk (but crucially, not skinny) ties. There are four colourways to choose from, Beluga, Salmon, Sturgeon and Wasabi Tobikko and colours have been Pantone-matched. Buy them now on Esty at the discounted rate of $75.
