With the focus on neckwear, I create designs from a poetic point of view. One of a kind statement items, executed in limited edition series. Based on formal dress codes and human behavior, putting them into a new context. All items are handmade, to ensure the best craftsmanship. Away from fast fashion manufacturing systems, everything is produced in my Amsterdam based studio.
When summer leaves and autumn falls. Inspired by the change of seasons and as a metaphor for a phase in life, this collection consists of bowties with a selection of digital prints, based on the fall and its beautiful colors. The shape of leaves transformed into a bowtie. Handmade with high quality silk
LOVE ME NOT
A bowtie in the shape of a flower, with wings as petals. Not to pluck it as the little love game suggests, but to show it in full bloom. Made from pure silk and with an adjustable neck strap in the same green color as a flowers stem. The bowties are digitally printed with the petals of a flower, including a pistil in the middle.
LIKE A BUTTERFLY
The metamorphosis of caterpillar to butterfly is one of nature’s most profound. When I experienced a significant change in my own life, meeting my father for the first time. A butterfly was the inspiration for a new bow tie and marked the starting point to focus on neckwear. Traditionally plain black and worn on formal occasions, this reinterpretation of the classic accessory is injected with a sense of poetry. The collection includes silk, digital printed and monochromatic cotton, woven bow ties.
