This is a contemporary tie (Italian silk, but maker unknown) that embodies all the soubriquets usually applied to fabulous 50s designs: atomic, retro, mid-century modern, tiki, lounge, Eames era, etc. The best feature of the tie is its astounding variety of textures: each color has its own particular weave pattern. And what a great sheen, too! This necktie is an extraordinary piece of work and is destined for the Permanent Collection.
