New Mix and Match Accessory Range

I've been dropping quite a few hints recently on Twitter and Instagram about a new mix and match accessory range I've been working on and I am now delighted to say it has landed in my shop, ta-da! What do you think?

The range includes mismatched cufflinks for him (or her, come on ladies, we can so wear cufflinks too!), personalised ties for him, mix and match bow ties and matching double sided personalised handkerchiefs. They're available in four gorgeous colour combinations, including a beautiful pastel pink with a pink, orange and blue flower meadow, a vibrant red polka dot with a fun flower mix print, a classic navy polka dot with a bold navy, orange and light blue floral print and a beautiful blue polka dot combined with gorgeous pink roses.

I loved working on this range from the initial concept, drawing it up, finding the perfect fabric colour and pattern combinations and of course, putting that all together and making them with my hands.

As part of that range I decided to continue the personalisation theme you can see in my handkerchief designs on to the ties. I loved the idea that on the back of the front tip of the tie could be a secret message or a special date that only the wearer of the tie and his or her better half knows about. Wearing the tie close to your heart makes it even more romantic and magical and hey, romance is definitely not dead folks, it's alive and kicking!

As you all know from my About page, my shop designs celebrate special occasions, living life to the full and colour to make you feel like you're on cloud nine! So, I chose to use a mix and match colour and pattern theme throughout to represent this. With the tie you'll find that the pattern changes half way up so that the front tip or half of the tie is floral and the end tip/second half is polka dot. I reversed the patterns on the backs of the tips, giving them a fun and playful essence.

What do you think? Would you wear these ties for a special occasion or maybe to give as a second wedding anniversary cotton themed gift?
