COLLARS EVOKE A MOOD INSTIGATED BY WHETHER THEY’RE FASTENED OR LEFT UNDONE. WE’RE SPOTTING BOW COLLARS THAT HINT ASSERTIVENESS FOR FALL/WINTER 2016 AND THESE ONES ARE STAYING TIED UP AND INVOLVED.
A bow collar can wrap up time with no surprise to Alessandro Michele collector’s eye for Renaissance relics. Among his gems, a pink silk bow fills the brim of Gucci decadence, while welcoming everything street-wise throughout his search. Modern talk brings Marni into full view with a collar rimmed with double black bows that stay outside the lines of convention.
Brunello Cucinelli enlists nostalgia with the dandy. His exquisite tailoring lies loose on the body where fine knits prime a bow with a poplin shirted neckline. Gareth Pugh maintains strictness with a slice of deviance, though this doesn’t cut the romance from his bow tied starry suit. The softness of Pugh’s knotted collar elevates the sharp lines, adding prowess to the collection’s female autonomy. Sport sided J. JS Lee elongates the bow edge with a modern minimalism. Fairytales at Dolce & Gabbana have crystal encrusted collars and princess bows tied to theatrics and along the lines of Erdem’s caped opera intrigue. Philosophy swings the spectrum towards the seventies laced with Siouxsie Sioux English retro rock prep, while Jeremy Scott has a Moschino torch smoke the beauty of tailcoats worn with bow collars to shreds.
