TIE YOUR TIE The simple knot: place the large pan about 30 centimeters below the small one before starting the operation. Right-handers must place this large pan on the right and left-handers on the left.
It is preferable not to mold a knot that is too rigorously triangular: a slight asymmetry will give a touch of salutary poetry.
COLORS It is also important to know that an impression of harmony results from the association of at least three colors. The ideal therefore, with a plain shirt, is to wear a tie with at least two colors: one opposite to that of the shirt, which will be the dominant color of the tie, and another reminding that of the shirt without going so far. in tone on tone.
> To avoid iron with excessively wrinkled ties, hang the tie in the bathroom when taking a bath or shower, leaving the fibers to relax in the steam. Then make sure to dry the tie flat.
> Dry cleaning is essential in a good dyer.
TRIP In a suitcase, you can use a tie case, preferably in leather. Other solutions include wrapping the ties around themselves without loosely tightening them, then placing them in shoes or folding them (at the level of the collar) and slipping them inside a thick garment.
COLS With a classic collar, anything goes. The supple, button-down American collar works great with a sports, Scottish, knit or club tie. The collar with tab, which projects the knot, can only be suitable for a wide or very thick tie. The Italian collars, with short and widely spaced tips, hardly welcome thin and discreet ties: preferably place a woven silk decorated with a fairly marked pattern, or why not a knitted tie.
HISTORY The primary function of the earliest ties in history was to protect from the harsh weather, which may have been responsible not only for the reappearance, but for the rise of the men's headscarf in the 17th century.
COLLECTION This tie belongs to the "Variable Geometry" collection. This collection takes us on a journey through the architectural meanders of mega-cities around the world. The geometric patterns of the bow ties, ties and scarves are reminiscent of the urban fabric drawn by transport, the structured landscape and the sometimes random grid pattern of the big cities seen from the sky. Here and there a pop orange, an electric blue, so many technicolor touches in the neon-lit night. Tokyo, Philadelphia, Caracas. Like Mondrian's compositions, the accessories bear the name of the cities that inspired them.
"Modern man has only one accessory which allows him to reveal his own vision of the world, to signal his own presence: the tie ”.
