the abbreviated necktie and other novel neckpieces

Bow ties don't seem to turn heads today as much as they did, say, two years ago. Enter Volkan Celic, a Turkish-German designer and recent graduate of Esmod fashion school in Berlin, who just launched a neckwear collection with a handful of pieces that piqued my interest.

The most graphic in the collection I think, this bow tie reminds me of those DIY velvet-ribbon bow ties, only stiffer, inversely proportioned, and upside-down.

This one's more sober than the others, but different enough to keep things interesting.

I'm seriously considering rocking the abbreviated necktie: necktie in origin, bow tie in spirit!

A festive candy-wrapper bow tie in black and gold lame.

And the piece de resistance, a semi-stiff neckerchief adorned with a black silken fringe "waterfall": part dramatic, part ridiculous, 100% The Dandy Project approved.

And speaking of fringe, I think the model's randomly curved blunt bangs are noteworthy. I'm in the market for a new haircut, any suggestions?

the model looks like a soldier in the old golden eye game on the n64, sort of flat and russian looking. pretty nice yeah, i have about 3 or 4 bowties, they never get worn sadly though.

I love the black cardigan. The neckties look so bare without a knitwear top!
