It’s no surprise that we love a beau in a bow tie here at Southern Weddings, so when the opportunity to collaborate with our dapper friends at High Cotton on an exclusive bow tie collection presented itself, we couldn’t have been more thrilled! You see, a bow tie line has long been on our wish list, and we simply can’t think of better partners to create it with. After lots of emails and phone calls, plus more fabric swatches than we can count, we are tickled pink to introduce you to the Southern Weddings for High Cotton bow tie collection!
Each of these beautiful bows (most available in neck ties, pocket squares and boy’s bow ties as well!), has its own personality and inspiration behind it that I’m excited to share with you!
While our UNC-loving gals might say this blue and white stripe was inspired by their beloved Heels, the real muse for our “Something Blue” bow was actually a classic Southern Weddings editorial, Something Blue from V3! While it’s perfect for spring weddings, it’s so stinkin’ hot here in the South, your gent can go on wearing it right into early fall!
Of course, no Southern Weddings collection would be complete without chambray, and our friends at High Cotton found a way to improve on our favorite fabric–make it peach, of course! Inspired by our pretty pink cover shoot for V7, A Bushel and a Peck, the sweetly saturated fabric of our “Sweet as a Peach” bow will have you craving a trip to Georgia before it’s even tied.
When you’re creating a fabric inspired by Freshly Squeezed, one of the happiest editorials we’ve ever produced (and one of my personal favorites!), it’s imperative that you go bright! The coral check print of our “Freshly Squeezed” bow tie is a delightfully juicy pattern that will make the perfect addition to your gent’s summer wedding attire!
Boasting the signature Southern Weddings color palette, our custom madras print, “Southern Madras,” is sure to become an instant favorite! We created this colorful design using our own gents as inspiration. We wanted a classic print that reminded us of our homes in the South, our mission, and, of course, our adorable beaus. The perfect pop of color for a classic gray suit or the cherry on top of a fun suspender and slacks combo, you can’t find this custom print anywhere else!
Way back when we started brainstorming about our bow tie collection, we knew we wanted a print inspired by our darling readers! “Champagne Toast” is a gold and white polka dot print that is the only silk tie in the collection, making it extra special, just like each of you. The pretty golden hue makes it formal without being fussy, and the white polka dots make it fun as a sprinkler in summer. Whether you’re planning a formal black tie affair or adding a little glitz to a more casual soiree, your dapper gent can dress this design up or down!
Y’all, aren’t they all so amazing?! We’re so thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful project and we are so grateful to our friends at High Cotton for helping us bring our dream to life!
Now the hard part, picking a favorite–which one is yours?
