Is 2019 the Year Neckties Become a Staple in Women's Wardrobes?

February 18 2019

If social movements have anything to do with it, we think so. Neckties have been around for centuries, worn by both men and women. The design and material has changed through the years, but to this day, a necktie is a necessity in a man’s wardrobe, yet nowhere on the list of closet necessities for women. But that could change in 2019...

There is an extreme shortage of sweetheart candies this Valentine's Day. But no need to fear. It appears the new NECCO owners, Spangler, will be bringing back the nostalgic candies in 2020 and we have some suggestions for what to press into these candies...

The Power of Bringing Women Together

August 21 2018
There are power in numbers, especially when it comes to gathering women together. We recently hosted a group of amazing women to talk influence, necktie designs, and styling - not to mention it all took place at a cafe named after Ada Lovelace! It was a magical evening. Here are a few of the photos.

The Women that Inspired our First Necktie Collection

June 18 2018

We have been loving doing events and talking with people about our women inspired neckties! And with each event or conversation, we always get the question of "how did you decide on the first set of women to design after?" 

It is a perfectly valid question as selecting the first seven was the most difficult part of the design process, but arguably the most fun at the same time. 

As you are probably already aware, each of our neckties come with a storyboard that includes a unique illustration of the woman and a write up on what makes her such a badass. Read on to see what was written on the boards for each woman! We think it's a worthy read :)

We Heart Michelle Obama and Her Neckties Too! (Photo Gallery)

What is there not to love about Mrs. Michelle Obama? A gutsy, smart, bold and determined woman equal to her husband (ahem, the former president), she is a true symbol of femininity and strength. She also became a notable trendsetter while being FLOTUS and we couldn’t help but point out the many times she rocked the necktie trend. See the gallery of photos below.

The Top Women of 2017

December 28 2017
2017 was a monumental year all around. We know it was chock-full of headlines, movies, books, albums, events, etc., but honestly, what comes to mind when we think of the year is: Wonder Woman and a plethora of powerful women - those that marched to start the year and those that continued to make waves and lead conversations throughout the last twelve months.
