Marwood ties: remembering summer
Back in the summer, I called in a selection of ties from Marwood, and off we headed to Hackney Marshes to shoot a little video. The idea was to see two men dressing one another, but in a natural, outdoor setting, creating a contrast between the refined, delicate ties and the then abundant foliage.
Whilst I intended this to go live whilst the sun was still high, and Marwood was finding new retail outlets like Mr Porter and Liberty over the summer months, it’s only just ready to share with you now. Hopefully this will trigger a few memories of summer and show the ties to their best advantage in that now distant sunlight.
The selection used here is from the Split Screen AW12 collection, and it was really hard to decide which ones to choose. At the time, I’d bought the green lace detail tie, fell in love with the lurex one on the shoot, and now find myself drawn to the monochrome honeycomb. Such is the appeal of these ties: there is always something new to discover and appreciate. Rather than mere accessories, Marwood ties are items to plan whole outfits around.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how the Marwood line develops and creating opportunities for more tie-wearing in 2013.

My previous Marwood video post, featuring the lace bow tie, is still one of the most popular posts on Sharpened Lead.
