First Street Style presents, “Ties That Bind(less),” an exhibition and sale of vintage 20th century, Italian, men’s neckwear curated by Michael Joyner.
The exhibit opens this Saturday, August 28th at NOA Gallery from 3:00PM until 6:30PM at 132 Rhode Island Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20001.
“Ties That Bind(less),” will run until September 11th, and be open during the week from Wednesday through Friday from 6PM to 9PM.
The collection will feature an array of luxurious neckties that span various decades in Italy’s rich fashion history. The ties afford a unique ability to accessorize with a stylish sophistication that is sure to distinguish one from fleeting fashion trends, while allowing the style novice to ‘up-grade’ even the most basic ensemble.
Crafted from some of the finest silks and wool, the ties feature original patterns and weaves that design houses of today are working vigorously to emulate. The vintage provenance of the ties will make it virtually impossible to find another gentleman wearing the same tie. The collection features classic brands like Clubman, Tino Cosma, and Yves Saint Laurent to name a few.
The art direction and display for, “Ties That Bind(less)” is a collaboration of Michael Little of NOA Gallery, and Michael Joyner of First Street Style.
