My MANy Bags Trendspotting #52

Below: Ribbon ties...will it be the next neckwear trend?

Below: D&G Fall WInter 2009 Men's Collection has a few ribbon tie looks.
Even Zara has a version...

Below: Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2009 Mens Collection also see some similar ribbon style neck embellishment...but these are somewhat part of the shirt

Ribbon Ties

Bowties are all the rage since a few seasons back. This dandy-ish neckwear for men has been given a new lease of life with different interpretations from different designers. Lanvin being the foremost perpetuator of such classic elegance but always with a contemporary uptake. Their raw edging and used treatment lends a modern twist to this age old men's accessory.

But how long will the bowtie 'trend' last? As fickle as fashion day you are in, the next day you are out:-) So what will follow next?

Can it be ribbon ties? I do like this charming alternative to men's neckwear. Kinda cute and sweet in a way. Very 'gentle-manly'...literally!

Hm, I think the Prorsum version is okay. As usual Chris Bailey did a marvelous job integrating something different into the collection without it being overbearing like those D&G ones. What I like about the Prorsum version is A) it matches the color of the shirt, so it doesn´t stand out so much and B) it´s slim. Don´t we all love slim?
