How can the tie, that little bit of fancy folie for men, be up-dated
into a fashion-art statement?
Monsieur Jean-Yves has found the way. He has taken that object of lesser affection, the bow-tie, and with the artistry of his knots and the exclusiveness of his specially made fabrics, he is on the edge of a sartorial revolution. The bow-tie - noeud papillon - has the zest of the outsider who wins us over. Those who chose the bow-tie in the recent past were always a little on the renegade side. The problem is, they weren't always as well-dressed as they wanted to be. Lack of quality? There's no excuse anymore.

Monsieur Jean-Yves' celebration of Cannes
The glory of fabric is key
a subdued peacock
authentic fine feathers
and it goes on. Really, the choice is difficult...
Contemporary Parisian dandies are not legion but they are everywhere. Up to them to peruse these haute façon accessories to find their own. Tying is optional, do-it-yourself or pre-tied, some bows will fête the most special occasions and others will add spank to a simple denim shirt.
If you do not find your bonheur in his vast and varied collections,
Monsieur Jean-Yves also has a bespoke tie service.
Those of you who know me, know I've always liked ties and any way of celebrating the day with a bit of color and precious textile. Monsieur Jean-Yves has found the way to do so by uniting tradition and technology with the spirit of the today.
