My Pattern and Print

Step into Prep

On 31, Jul 2012 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

As I was thinking about Tigerprints latest competition Male Fashion Icons I always had in my head the idea of a tie or bow tie as a classic symbol of men’s design and when I saw Paul Smiths Spring/Summer 2013 collection the idea was made, a classic necktie with a smart casual design inspired by the 1950s preppie look.  It’s a fashionable look with a timeless appeal.

I drew a few tie shapes in illustrator and worked on the colours and stripes.

I like textures and I really liked the idea of giving the design a fabric feel.  It gave the ties more depth and pop!

In true prep style not everything has to match exactly but it always coordinates.


Take a look at the other designs over at Tigerprint and it’s not to late to enter, the deadline is August 3rd!
