Crafted for Lexus: leather bow tie
Crafted from the same sumptuous leather upholstery used in the interior of the Lexus LC flagship coupe, the concept for this item of clothing was to balance the formal appearance of a bow tie with a more casual approach.
The beautifully curved form is created by folding and stitching the supple leather, while the luxurious texture is enhanced with perforations that also offer an informal and somewhat playful impression.
The bow tie is the work of Shinji Iwamoto (below), whose Roberu brand aims to promote unique Japanese leather crafts and products around the world. His meticulous attention to detail is seen in the precision of each stitch and the thoughtful nature of every design feature – qualities that will make this bow tie a talking point at formal events and a chic, characterful addition to everyday attire.
Colours available: ochre, black, white and dark rose
