With the focus on timeless and fashion free design, Corné Gabriëls creates unique neckwear from a poetic point of view. Concepts based on human behavior, anecdotes and memories, are the founding grounds of each design. Putting classic shapes and formal dress codes into a new light. Everything is handmade, to provide the best craftsmanship, attention and personal feel to each and every item. Away from fast fashion manufacturing systems, all designs are produced in his Amsterdam studio.
Autumn falls when summer leaves, nostalgia comes when memories have become better. This collection consists of a selection digital prints, based on the fall and its warm, beautiful colors. The shape of a leaf, transformed into a bowtie. Handmade with high quality silk.
The little love game "Love me, love me not" forms the base for the flower bowtie. A bowtie in the shape of a flower, with wings as petals. Not to pluck it as the 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, this floral statement shows your more romantic side. This classic accessory has evolved from formal to poetic dresscode. The bowties are digitally printed with the petals of a flower, including a pistil in the middle.
The metamorphosis of caterpillar to butterfly is one of nature’s most profound. When designer Corné Gabriëls experienced a significant change in his own life, meeting his father, a butterfly became the inspiration for a new bow tie collection. Traditionally plain black and worn on formal occasions, Gabriëls’ reinterpretation of the classic accessory is injected with a sense of poetry. The collection includes silk, digital printed and monochromatic cotton, woven bow ties.
