Bow Ties: Not Just For College Professors (Or Brad Goreski) Anymore

-------

The boy-meets-girl look has been bigger than ever the past few seasons (for proof, see the Tux Love story in our Fall trend reports), but the dandy-ish neckties we’ve been spotting on celebs lately are something new. Both Diane Kruger and Jaime King wore Jason Wu looks knotted at the throat last week. Kruger topped her shorts suit from Resort with a classic bow tie, while King kept things feminine with a satin ribbon that played up her lacy dress. On the Chanel Couture runway, meanwhile, Karl Lagerfeld showed a long jacket with a flared maxi skirt and a loopy tie that was right up Janelle Monáe’s alley—the Chanel muse, like the Kaiser himself, has a known penchant for black-tie ensembles.

    I find this so ironic! In my Fall 2011 collection (its just on paper & pencil!) nearly every menswear-inspired outfit included a bow-tie! Did I mention I made that collection in May? Maybe a 12 year old can start trends.

  2. This is the right webpage for anyone who really wants to understand this topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for many years. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful.
