A post for the gentlemen, but also for all ladies searching for a stylish salsa-suitable gift.
For a long time I have been fancying the great bow ties on dawanda. The birthday of my boyfried was approaching and in addition we will be attending a wedding soon, so we decided to purchase these colourful fashionable accessoires. In the stores of our town we couldn’t find anything comparable to attract our attention.
Bow ties are nowadays available in almost any design imaginable. It wasn’t easy to decide on the design of those classic 4 bow ties, but we are more than happy with our choice. The ordered from the Italian company Scocca Papillon. Besides, the idea behind the brand is brillant, upcycling is always a good thing:
Scocca Papillon was born from a passion for fashion and tailoring for the vintage style, named after the Sicilian word ‘scocca’ , which in Italian means ‘ bow ‘ .
In this attention to the charm of the past and tradition, that bow ties are made of vintage fabric samples that were intended to be thrown away by a former draper’s shop and upholstery .
Each piece is unique, attention to detail and hand-stitched in a house tailoring, fabrics are made of materials, colors, patterns and different style of the 70 ‘, 80 ‘ and 90 ‘ .
The project is linked to the idea of giving a second life to things, everything that we do not need, superfluous, and the difference.
One way to find that you can still give a new shape and a value renewed with style and attention to taste.
To those who keep the value of the unique, unrepeatable, original and poetic.
The tailor-made fabrication combined with the premium quality material (cotton and silk) makes you feel as if your bow tie is unique.
I don’t have to say anything about the colours, here a picture is truly worth a thousand words.
Moreover the service was great, the shipping fast and the value for money excellent.
The bow ties are an eyecatcher not only at salsa parties! In my opinion they are better than a simple tie on many occasions, as long as you are in for a young and modern look.
Dear salsa event organizers, please let us have a ladies bow-tie motto party soon!
