neck & neck
It’s summertime: put the dark, silken ties and heavy diamonds away for a snowy winter’s day, and throw on something classically easy, because you’ll be needing the sun, the sea, and accessories that are just as lighthearted. Up for the task are some limited edition handmade ties the color of sherbet and sunsets in late July and exquisitely cultured Japanese pearl strands—perfect for finishing off the laid-back elegance of your warm-weather getup. Tie on Hack & Hue’s pale, lime-green creation over a light denim shirt and salmon-hued shorts, or layer up with Mikimoto’s classic strands and pearl-encrusted pendant necklaces over that strapless sundress…and when it gets chilly in the evening, a colorful cashmere silk scarf is all that’s needed. A holiday away has never looked so good.
