There is nothing like a perfectly positioned bow tie to add a bit of old fashioned glamour to an outfit, and the cheerful colours and patterns of The Bow Club‘s spring/summer 2012 collection are particularly delightful. The Bow Club is a Swedish brand founded by Mohammed Naeem Saleem who make handmade bow ties produced exclusively in Gothenberg, Sweden. The bow ties are joined by genuine brass details and Swedish deer nubuck. They can be purchased online here.
