Jewelry Trends: The Bow
Il Gioiello Creazioni
When one speaks of the bow tie, it’s impossible not to mention Lanvin’s creative director Alber Elbaz who has made it his trademark. Or there’s also the up-and-coming designer Alexis Mabille who reinterpreted the bow tie in a surprisingly creative way before launching a ready-to-wear line. But this little tie knotted at the neck is not off-limits to women. In fact, when worn as a jewel it gives her an intriguing, masculine allure.
The trendsetter Delfina Delettrez is a perfect example with her collection We Man, which plays with this theme. She does away with traditional characteristics to steal from men’s wardrobes in a provocative way. Worn one on top of the other as rings or as a pin at the neckline, bow ties are a must-have for the season. To be worn with nonchalance.
