Happy Monday everyone, how are you all this wet and windy Monday morning? I hope...
In this weeks Bridal Style feature I am bringing you something a bit different, as this week it is all about the men! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I’m not a fan of the old traditional mens wedding cravat, it’s just not something I feel is necessary in weddings any more, especially when there are so many amazing ties and bow ties on the market. These beautiful creations from Jupe by Jackie are just what I’m talking about. With each tie and bow tie being individually hand embroidered it gives the groom the chance to have something truly special to wear on his big day. With superb finishing and beautiful designs, these ties and bow ties are just what you’re looking for to give your man the fashion edge on your big day.
‘Within a span of 5 years, Jupe by Jackie has become internationally celebrated as a top embroidery house, especially known for its exquisitely crafted ties and bow ties. Jackie proudly collaborates with Comme des Garçons, creating the hand embroidery for their ready-to-wear collections, as well as numerous other high end boutiques such as Colette Paris, Jeffrey’s New York and Corso Come 10’
