Often, when I'm in vintage stores, I see so many neckties...just lying there in all their patterned, bygone glory... Each one with a story...each one, to me, representing the style choice of some anonymous person. And it always makes me a little sad, sigh...ties are a little too small to make anything out of...
Then along comes Laura Skelton. And all the neckties yell out, clamoring in their bin... "Hey, Laura...over here!! Wouldn't I make a great wallet? Whaddaya think of me for a necklace? I could be your guy! Well helllloooo lovely lady!"
She saunters over to the Necktie Waiting Area...and picks one out that catches her eye....Yes...he'll do just fine....
"Hey! She's picking Steve! Hey, Steve, you lucky guy! Bon Voyage Steve! Don't Forget To Write!!"
But Steve doesn't hear them...he's off to live his next life as a new accessory. He's with Laura, and she's gonna make him feel brand new.
I really enjoyed writing this...and I really enjoy Laura's products and concept. I think these designs are very 'of the moment'. Recycled, somewhat preppy, clever without irony, personal, and a menswear look that will work for the ladies. Not to mention, they can probably be personalized if you sent in your own tie-- for example, that one with the whales that your dad always wore! (Hi dad!-- just kidding-- I'd NEVER mess with the whale tie!)
Enjoy! xx s
