Homage To The Kings Of 20th Century Fashion - Recreating YSL and Valentino Circa 1960's

As it was said in our blog post here, we set about creating for an older gentleman recreations of his favourite bow tie and tie into Le Noeud Papillon ties. The process was very enjoyable in analysing the silks and construction of both the tie and bow tie. This afternoon we dispatched them to said gentleman but sent a picture to his phone first. His response was "WOW!". We were happy too. The YSL bow tie was a magnificent number with real character. It was very light weight in construction so we used a heavier silk to finish the bow and we were really pleased with the result. The Valentino tie silk had to be fused first before sewing and it too turned out really well with a contrast between it's dusty vintage finish and the new, brighter shinier mogador we used as contrast. Take a look below.

Old and new, recreating old ties and bow ties into contemporary bows whilst paying homage to Yves St Laurent and Valentino with their work that came before us.
A very enjoyable process. I now look forward to the opportunity to doing it for more customer who have favourite ties they want to recreate. Warning though, there's no change in the price if you supply the silk!
