Our 2017 mid-winter lookbook, URBAN, is a collection of neckties and pocket squares with a dose of color and pattern to liven up your wardrobe for the winter months and beyond. Three different looks from this collection will be exclusively released on VOIR CULTURI every week.
Our intention is to show you how easily some of the artwork neckties and pocket squares can be paired with your existing wardrobe. Simple colors like blue, gray, and white help to ground the patterns and make your ensemble pop. Unless you’re looking for something a bit more flashy, which we will showcase in next week’s looks.
Introducing URBAN: Our lookbook showcasing the perfect Winter outfits.
“This mandala is based on the phenomenon of Multiple Discovery – new concepts, theories, and inventions are often conceived independently and almost simultaneously by multiple, unrelated people. Every person’s thoughts and ideas go out into the universe and come back as divine inspiration for someone else.”
A color palette consisting of a soft base of Aqua, and mandalas in tan undertones provides a restrained centerpiece.
“This design resulted from noticing the stark features of most of the modern buildings on a drive into town. How plain and functional most of these recent structures have become. I started to wonder what happened to the impulse to decorate and adorn our homes and furniture. Where have all the peasants gone? Has our urban concrete landscape swallowed our imaginations? So this design was a playful attempt to return to our folk traditions.”
An exquisite geometric pattern that effortlessly works with a timeless wardrobe by using classic pairing colors of navy, gold, and burgundy.
“This piece is inspired by the Baroque era of classical music. A continuous, uniform key is complemented by various musical ornamentations, adding a sense of drama, exuberance, and grandeur. Yet, no matter how embellished, Baroque music and art always remains grounded by structure, thus able to maintain an undeniable elegance and poise.”
A darker base hue provides a balanced contrast to the mandala pattern on this necktie, making it an instant classic similar to a navy pin-dot or floral print.
