If you didn’t have a date before the Winchester tie, you certainly will after.  From the handcrafters over at Harding & Wilson, the Winchester is a limited run bow tie of 10 pieces all made from 100% cotton.  These ties had a former life as a set of decorative curtains but in the hands of the Harding & Wilson team, they have been transformed into powdery pink bow ties that make a soft, beautiful statement.

The Price Crewneck from Jack Spade may be your classic Pacific Northwest casual fare but the punch of pink gives it a sense of lightness much needed during these gloomy days.  It’s a reminder that spring is on the horizon and the lush landscape of brighter times is within reach.  Made from a heavy terry fleece, the raglan sleeves and v-notch collar with strong outer seams make it a comfortable companion for V-Day.

The neckerchief is here.  The Pink Shibori Neckerchief from Kiriko was constructed from a vintage shibori dyed kimono jacket.  The pattern is truly handmade through an intense and classic Japanese dyeing technique called Shibori.  The design of this neckerchief was created by shaping, knotting, and folding the actual fabric then dyeing the material in a deep pink hue.  The coloring illuminates the intensity of the texture and visual attraction.
