Who would have thought that a cream suede bow strung on a black leather bolo could be sophisticated—understated, even? The duo behind Alex & Eli have made a piece that looks fantastic over a cozy sweater or a tight black dress—or paired with a collared shirt, just the way the boys wear their bow ties. And, because this accessory has the means to give practically any outfit a little cheeky charm, it’s a good thing that the bow can be moved up and down the leather cord to change its positioning and, in turn, your look. Each pair comes with a certificate of authenticity that’s signed and numbered by the designers.
- Cream suede and black leather with silver hardware
- adjustable bow tie placement.
Working with suits requires a whole new vocabulary.
But both of the designers are holding onto some of their science-y dreams.
